BEAUMONT, Tex. — Two games into the season, and the Lamar Cardinals have the look of a top team in the Southland Conference in 2017-18.
The Cardinals came into Thursday with a 2-0 record, and were looking to make it three straight wins to open the season when they took on the Jarvis Christian Bulldogs in Beaumont, Texas. Wins over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have given the Cardinals a big boost of momentum moving forwards.
Against the Bulldogs, the Cardinals were simply too much. The home side used a pair of 50+ point halves to push themselves over the century mark for the first time since December 21st, 2016, when they put up 125 points on the Arlington Baptist Huskies.
