La Follette, Memorial football victorious
West was a bit too much for West in Big Eight football Thursday night.
Make that Tedrin West, who caught a 23-yard pass from in overtime to give Madison La Follette High School a 14-6 victory over Madison West at Lussier Stadium.
La Follette (3-5), which was on offense first in the overtime, overcame a 15-yard face-mask penalty to score the winning touchdown. The Lancers then added a two-point conversion on an Anthony Briggs run.
West (1-7) got to La Follette's 6-yard line on the ensuing series, but a third-down fumble recovery by the Lancers ended the game and gave La Follette its third straight win.
Briggs scored La Follette's first touchdown on a 29-yard run and had 33 of his team's 38 rushing attempts for 211 yards—10 more than the Lancers' net total. Malcom Wilson rushed 23 times for 133 of West's 201 yards on the ground.
