The Holy Ground Baptist Academy football team celebrated homecoming in style on Friday night, laying out Lafayette Christian in a 70-20 rout in Roopville.

The Stallions (4-0) were coming off an open date and racked up 310 yards of offense in the victory led by junior quarterback Jackson Yates, who completed 8-of-11 pass attempts for 102 yards and two touchdowns. His twin brother, Brady, also had a big night, rushing for 88 yards and two scores on eight carries and hauling in five receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. Lane Long also had a solid ground game for the Stallions with 68 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.

Defensively, Brady Yates recorded 11 tackles with a fumble recovery for a touchdown, while Jackson Yates added seven tackles and an interception and Chris Organ had eight takedowns, including a sack for a loss of 12 yards.

Holy Ground opened the scoring on a seven-yard Jackson Yates run and a Yates to Johnathan Smith touchdown pass of eight yards stretched the lead to 14-0.

A second Cougar turnover resulted in a defensive score for the Stallions, as Brady Yates rumbled in from 12 yards out and the two-point pass to Organ made it a 20-0 affair.

From there, Isaiah Rice added a two-yard touchdown run and also ran in the conversion and following a Jackson Yates interception, Brady Yates scored on a touchdown run to make it a 36-0 contest.

After the Cougars got on the board late in the first half, the Yates twins combined for three more touchdowns and Micah Preston sacked Lafayette's quarterback in the end zone for a safety for the 64-6 margin. Long found the end zone for the final Stallion score to push the lead to 70-6 before the Cougars scored a pair of late touchdowns for the 50-point differential.
