The South Shelby Cardinals put up 46 first half points, as they cruised to a 60-28 win over the Louisiana Bulldogs Friday night at South Shelby High School.
   After stopping the Bulldogs on their opening possession, the Cardinals jumped out early as a long punt return by Chase Morrow gave the Cardinals a first a goal at the Bulldog seven yard line. Bryce Fifer scored on the first play from scrimmage to put South Shelby on top. The point after by Sean Bishop made it 7-0 Cardinals with 10:22 to play in the opening quarter.
   Louisiana came right back with a score of its own on its next possession. The Bulldogs’ Zach Richardson connected with Jake Sencenbaugh for an 85 yard completion to the Cardinal five yard line. Lane Rule scored from five yards out on the next play. The point after tied the game 7-7 with 9:48 to play in the first quarter.
   The Cardinals started their next possession from their own 31 yard line. On third and three yards to go, Sidney Wear found an opening and was off to the races for a 45 yard run down to the 17 yard line. Wear scored on the next play from 17 yards out to put the Cards back on top. The point after by Bishop made it 14-7 South Shelby with 8:07 to play in the first quarter.
   After forcing a three and out on Louisiana’s next possession, Morrow took the punt and returned it 62 yards for another Cardinal touchdown. The point after was no good and the Cardinals held a 20-7 lead with 6:07 to play in the opening quarter.
   After forcing the Bulldogs to punt on their next possession, the Cardinals started their next drive from their own 30 yard line. Wear broke free for a 60 yard run on first down, giving the Cards a first down at the Louisiana 10 yard line. Ransom Chapin found his way to the endzone on the next play from 10 yards out to extend the lead. The point after was no good and the Cardinals led 26-7 with 3:42 to play in the first quarter.
   After Louisiana’s next drive finally stalled out on downs, the Cardinals took over on their own 40 yard line. On second and ten, Wear broke loose for a 60 yard touchdown run. The point after by Bishop was good making it 33-7 South Shelby with 11:36 to play in the first half.
   Another three and out by Louisiana led to another score on South Shelby’s next possession. On second and 15, Morrow found Bishop for a 37 yard completion to the Bulldog 14 yard line. Bryce Fifer broke free for a 14 yard touchdown on the next play. Bishop’s point after made it 40-7 Cardinals with 9:24 to play in the half.
   The Cardinals would add one more touchdown late in the half as Fifer found an opening from 45 yards out for a touchdown. The point after failed and the Cardinals led 46-6 with 4:04 to play in the first half.
   Louisiana was able to punch it in a second time, cutting the lead to 46-14 just before the half with 13.6 second remaining.
