OLNEY, Ill. — Olney recovered two footballs in Lawrenceville's end zone, punctuating a 27-point second quarter on its way to a 41-6 Little Illini Conference victory Friday over the Indians.

Lawrenceville (0-2 overall, LIC) received a Blayne Winningham 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to avoid the shutout. The Tigers (2-0 overall, LIC) racked up all their points in the first half and the second half was played with a running clock.

Winningham, who replaced injured brother Brenyn Winningham at quarterback during the game, led the Indians with 63 rushing yards to go with his touchdown.

The Tigers defense dictated play, forcing four turnovers and holding Lawrenceville to 7-of-21 passing and 104 total yards. Olney threw three touchdown passes, two by Austin Nuttall, and Gavin Dorn amassed 129 yards rushing and a score.

The Indians host Paris in their home opener at 2 p.m. (CDT) Saturday.
