The Minden Crimson Tide faced their latest, and thankfully their last, in a line of some of north Louisiana's best 5A teams Friday night at the Pit, and again took it on the chin, with Ruston taking the win, 59-14.
One of the premier running backs in the area, Alexio Hargrove, put on a show for the Bearkat faithful who made the trip to Minden. Hargrove had 146 yards on the night, averaging 12.2 yards each time he touched the ball, and scored three touchdowns before he went to the bench at halftime. Meanwhile, quarterback C.J. Gatlin completed seven of seven passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns, and then ran for another to put the game completely out of reach by the half.
