Going into the Woodlawn game, all of Airline’s primary receivers had a touchdown reception except Logan Williams.
That changed Friday night.
Williams caught two touchdown passes as Airline rolled to a 42-8 victory over the Knights in the Vikings’ homecoming game at Airline Stadium.
Airline improved to 4-0, while Woodlawn dropped to 0-4. The Vikings travel to Monroe Friday to face defending Class 4A state champion and No. 1 ranked Neville.
“We’re going to prepare this week and be ready to play our best,” Airline coach Bo Meeks said.
Airline quarterback Hayden Hildebrand threw his first interception of the season in the first quarter. Other than that, though, he ran the Vikings’ spread offense to near perfection.
The senior completed 22 of 24 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns.
“Offensively, we got into a rhythm,” Meeks said. “Hayden threw the ball well, receivers played great. Roderick (Spurlock) came in and made a couple of nice runs.”
Hildebrand’s touchdown passes to Williams covered 29 and 27 yards.
“Logan had a great night,” Meeks said. “He was the one guy in the receiving corps who hadn’t scored a touchdown and he had two tonight. We moved the ball around. (Laterious) Pouncy had a great night.”
Pouncy caught nine passes for 112 yards, and Williams had five for 83. Trey Turner caught four passes for 43 yards and a touchdown. Spurlock scored two TDs on short runs. Matt Hanisee was a perfect 6-for-6 on PATs.
Airline's defense was dominant against the outmanned Knights. Brynden Vance returned an interception for a touchdown.
“Defensively, for the second week in a row, just unbelievable,” Meeks said. “We dominated the line of scrimmage. I don't know if they gained a yard with their ones tonight.”
Running back Michael Nunnery suffered a bruised knee late in the first half. He could have returned but was held out the remainder of the game as a precautionary measure, Meeks said.
