|Lone Oak puts Fulton away in ‘Flash’ |

|It might be said that Fulton City’s 54-0 loss to Lone Oak was over in a jiffy. |
Or maybe in a flash — a Purple Flash.
Lone Oak, the fourth-ranked (Class 4A) team in the state of Kentucky, totaled 402 yards of offense without the services of star quarterback Jamarielle Brown, who did not play due to an undisclosed issue.
Nonetheless, minus their quarterback, the Purple Flash still thrived as backup Cameron Looper was 13-for-18 with 215 yards and a pair of touchdown passes.
On the flip side, the Bulldogs struggled without their quarterback Aaron Wilson.
The senior signal-caller came out of the game early in the first quarter after he suffered a high-ankle sprain on a 14-yard gain. He did not return to the field, but Lohaus expects him to be able to go against Reidland next Friday.
“We were moving the ball pretty good on that first drive,” Fulton City head coach Wayne Lohaus said. “Then, when Aaron went down, I thought we still played well under the circumstances. Demarquis Young came in and did a good job for Wilson, but they had too many numbers for us.”
Lone Oak scored on the first play from scrimmage as Looper hooked up with Logan Francis for a 52-yard touchdown pass. Mason English booted the point-after-kick to put LO up 7-0.
In the second quarter, LO bettered the Bulldogs overall to lead 34-0 at intermission.
Looper found Justin Jackson for a 15-yard touchdown toss just four minutes into the period as the Purple Flash went up 14-0.
Matt Starks cut loose on a 21-yard touchdown carry and Jackson took the pigskin to paydirt twice — on runs of 11 and 33 yards.
Later, in the third quarter, Starks ran for a 28-yard touchdown and Jackson took in his fourth score of the evening — a 17-yard rush.
In the fourth quarter, Joe Starks accounted for the only score as he dove into the endzone from a yard away.
Overall, Fulton was held to 111 yards offense with Jacquise Lockett the leading rusher (48 yards on 14 carries). Wilson had 33 yards on six carries prior to his injury.
Defensively, Lockett led the way for the Bulldogs as well with 13 tackles (eight solo). Freshman Ray Pledge was in on seven stops and Andre Glass accumulated six takedowns during the defeat.
