North DeSoto won their first game of the season on the road against Natchitoches Central in week one. Now it was time for the home opener against a tough Parkway team. This would be a good test for the young Griffin team in a non-district game.

1st Quarter

Parkway received the ball; the Griffin defense came out strong and forced a three and out. North DeSoto’s offense also went three and out and punted as well. Alex Roberts, Kelvin Fields, and Chris Norris got some key stops to force another three and out for Parkway. North DeSoto got some yardage on a run from Mike Lias, but they still had to punt. Parkway was putting together a nice long drive before they mishandled the ball and Alex Roberts intercepted it for the Griffins. Kelvin Kinney was able to break a tackle and power forward for a first down. The first quarter ended scoreless with the Griffins trying to find some offense.

2nd quarter

David Atkins ran for a first down to get the Griffins close to the red zone. They got it to the 17 yard line and went for it on fourth down, but did not convert. North DeSoto’s defense was still standing strong as Logan Ferguson got a sack on third down to bring up a punt for Parkway. Kelvin Kinney threw an interception early in the drive which gave the Panthers good field position.
