South Beauregard had two runners go over 100 yards as it picked up its first win of the season and the first since 2016.
Colby Hollier and Jaydon Derouen combined for 340 rushing yards as the Knights defeated DeQuincy 30-13 Friday night at home.
"I'm really happy for the kids. They work really hard," South Beauregard head coach Dwight Hudler said. "Our last win was a playoff win in 2016, so it's been a bit. It's the first win for some of them because many of them were not playing at that time. I'm really just happy for them because, after a season like last year, it gets that monkey off their back.
"I told them that now you can take a breath. We got one under our belt. Now, let's go get better. We still have a lot of things to improve on. We saw some good things last night and some things that need to be mixed. Enjoy the win on Friday and get back to work on Monday."
The Knights took a 7-0 lead after a touchdown by Hollier and extended the lead to 14-0 in the second quarter after a run by Derouen.
South Beauregard (1-2) took a 17-7 lead into halftime, and after a scoreless third quarter, DeQuincy (1-2) closed the gap to 17-13 with a rushing score of its own.
With four minutes to go, Hollier scored a touchdown to increase the lead to 23-13, and Derouen finished off the quarter with a score for the game's final points.
"We knew (DeQuincy) was going to get loose because they have some talented to kids," Hudler said. "We really limited the big plays. Any time you can make the offense earn it, good things happen. We got a few turnovers and a couple of long drives when we needed it.
"We kind of wore them out. Anytime you can be physical and run downhill, good things happen."
Hollier finished with 140 yards on 13 carries and caught a pass for a 40-yard score. Hollier started the first two games at quarterback but was moved to running back this week.
"We looked at what was our best option, and having (quarterback Kyler Kibodeaux) on the field and Colby on the field at the same time gave us the best chance," Hudler said. "We pride ourselves on being a blue-collar team and running the ball. We try to get the kids in the best spot possible."
Derouen racked up 200 yards on 28 carries to go along with a pair of touchdowns.
"A couple of years ago, we had two kids run for 1,000, and I think these two are on their way," Hudler said. "You can't say that you want to take away this kid because the other one is so talented.
"He is our between-the-tackles back, but he has good vision. He made a couple of good cuts and got outside."
Nick Uhlick led the defense with nine tackles and an interception.
