Simply put, it was just too much Bruce Jordan-Swilling on Friday night.
Well, for a half.
The Brother Martin junior running back didn’t play the second half.
He didn’t need to after rushing 19 times for 344 yards and seven touchdowns as Brother Martin romped to a 68-21 road victory over St. Stanislaus (Miss.).
Jordan-Swilling now has 12 touchdowns in the first two games for the Crusaders (2-0), ranked No. 2 in The New Orleans Advocate’s Large School Super 10.
He scored five in last week’s season opening victory over Plaquemine.
On Friday night against last year’s Class 4A runners-up in Mississippi, he scored on runs of 9, 13, 2, 40, 2, 80 and 83 yards to help the Crusaders build a 47-14 halftime lead.
But it wasn’t just him.
Eric Lassair rushed nine times for 128 yards and Kevin Casey rushed nine times for 83 yards. Lassair and Casey both scored touchdowns as well in a game Brother Martin rushed for 564 yards.
Irv Smith, a Texas A&M commit, caught the other touchdown on a 12-yard reception from Jake Broggi.
St. Stanislaus junior quarterback Myles Brennan, who threw for Mississippi single season records in both yards (5,761) and touchdowns (64), completed 23 of 36 passes for 316yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Brother Martin, ranked No. 6 in the LSWA Class 5A polls, hosts Edna Karr on Friday at Tad Gormley Stadium.
NORTHLAKE CHRISTIAN 43, COHEN 12: In Covington, the Wolverines unloaded for 26 points in the first quarter and cruised to an easy win at home.
Three players — Wesley Brown, Mitchell Arnold and Joshua Landry — ran for at least 50 yards for Northlake Christian (2-0), which opened last season with a 10-point win over Capitol last week.
Brown had a team-high 79 yards and a touchdown on four carries. Arnold added 77 yards on 1 carries, and Landry had 50 yards on seven attempts.
Northlake racked up 354 yards of offense and took advantage of four interceptions.
Northlake hosts Kipp Renaissance next week.
Cohen (0-2) visits St. Helena.
KENTWOOD 34, JEWEL SUMNER 13: Kentwood capitalized on a first-quarter Jewel Sumner turnover as Tyronne Brumfield returned a fumble 22 yards for the first score of the game.
Kentwood went on to score 14 more unanswered points in the first half; the first on a 2-yard run by Darriyn McKnight, and the second on a 9-yard pass from Carter to Larenz Moriss. Kentwood went into half time leading Jewel Sumner 20-0. Jewel Sumner scored their first points of the game in third quarter on a 2-yard run from Kyron Lee.
WEST ST. JOHN 28, DONALDSONVILLE 18: Going into the second quarter, with West St. John leading 7-6, the Rams’ Juwan Boudoin completed a 30-yard pass to Jamal Walters, extending the Rams’ lead to 13-6 going into halftime. Donaldsonville got a third-quarter touchdown on a 5-yard by Aaron Julien, but West St. John answered with a 14-yard touchdown pass from Dustin Bethancourt to Lamore Boudoin, then scored again on a blocked punt by Jabari Walters.
