A Night to Remember… When Dunham’s Harrison Domingue Romped for 8 TD’s
BATON ROUGE — It was a cool Thursday night at The Rock, the Redemptorist High School football stadium. For Dunham coach Guy Mistretta, it was an emotional night — the first time he had brought the Dunham Tigers to Redemptorist where Mistretta had coached for years and won the 2005 State Championship.
Coach Sid Edwards held a reunion of his 2002 Redemptorist 3A State Championship team before the game, and Redemptorist held its homecoming at half-time.
Yet, the game at The Rock between Redemptorist and Dunham would be remembered for something else — one of the greatest scoring performances in Louisiana football history.
Dunham’s senior running back Harrison Domingue scored eight touchdowns and a total of 50 points.
Domingue rushed 16 times for 262 yards and scored five touchdowns running. He also caught three passes for 105 yards and three touchdowns in the air. To top it off, he scored a two-point conversion.
The Dunham star, who is an all-round athlete, scored on Dunham’s first five possessions.
Redemptorist head coach Daniel Roane said he warned his players about Domingue and said they tried to contain him, but his power and speed were too much for the Wolves. Time and time again, he broke free and scored.
Roane said, “He’s one hell of a player!”
Dunham’s 67-28 victory guaranteed the Tigers a spot in the state playoffs.
Earlier this season, Thomas Tyner, a senior at Aloha High in Oregon, scored 10 touchdowns in a single game.
But Domingue’s eight TD’s are the most scored in a single game in Louisiana this year.
He was named WAFB-TV and WBRZ-TV Player of the Week.
Another outstanding athlete on the Dunham team this year is Harrison’s brother Grayson Domingue who plays offense, defense, and special teams for the Tigers. He almost never leaves the field of play.
