SEARCY — The Lonoke Junior Jackrabbits opened 4A-2 conference play with a 12-0 win over Riverview on Thursday.
Lonoke is now 2-1 on the season. 
Lonoke's Michael Hodges and Xavier Hodge both scored touchdowns in the victory. Hodges rushed for 208 yards on 24 carries. Hodge had 22 yards on 7 carries. 
Lonoke quarterback Kade Stuart completed 4 of 8 passes for 13 yards. Tallon Swint caught four passes for 13 yards. 
"It's always nice to get off to a 1-0 start in conference play," Lonoke coach Darrick Lowery said. "We played a bit of a sloppy first half but the guys came out of halftime with enthusiasm and locked in and we were able to pull out the win. 
"Our offensive line did a much better job in the second half. Give those guys a lot of credit for the win."
Lonoke will travel to Heber Springs next week.
