For the second week in a row the Lawrence County Red Devils started off slow. 

However, some big second half plays finally got the Devils into high gear and allowed them to roll to victory Friday night. 

After trailing 7-0 at halftime, the Devils scored three touchdowns in the third quarter. 

Senior Ty Hutto had three touchdown passes on the night, a 62 yard to Malik Strickland, 70 yarder to Allen Johnson and a 20 yard throw to Garrett Lee. 

Tayi Strickland closed the scoring with a 44 yard pick six. 

"We've had five turnovers in the first quarter of two games," head coach Rich Dutton. "We've been very sloppy early, and we've got to get our minds settled down so we can execute better." 

Dutton, who was in his second game as offensive playcaller, hopes the second half is what you see moving forward. 

"You have to hope so. I have to do a better job of looking at what I'm doing to better prepare these guys, because obviously when it gets rolling, this is a very dangerous offense." 

Lawrence County will travel to West Point next week.
