Jays soar past Hurricanes

The St. Edmund Blue Jays celebrated homecoming with a convincing 57-0 win over the North Central Hurricanes.
The Blue Jays exploded for 36 points in the first half and then added 21 more points in the third period.
“It was a big win for us,” James Shiver said. “I was hoping the officials would run the clock in the second half because I don’t like scoring that many points against anyone.”
With the win, St. Edmund improves to 4-3 overall, 1-1 in District 5-1A and travel to rival Sacred Heart of Ville Platte on Friday.

Blue Jays to celebrate homecoming

It’s homecoming week at St. Edmund as the Blue Jays will entertain North Central in a key District 5-1A contest.
St. Edmund (3-3, 0-1) opened district play last week with a 35-6 loss to No. 7 Opelousas Catholic, but Blue Jay head coach James Shiver feels his team will rebound against the Hurricanes.
“They have some great athletes,” Shiver said. “But playing the spread all year should help us be ready.”
North Central (1-5, 0-1) opened the season with a 20-16 loss to Grand Lake before a forfeit win over Tara.

Bobcats brace for Indians

After a last-second 20-16 loss at Rayne, the Bobcats look to regroup Friday against the Washington – Marion Indians.
“We didn’t play very well,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said.
I thought we would be excited to play the first district game, but it didn’t seem like it.
“We need to refocus and play like we know we can.”
Washington – Marion (1-5) began the season with a 34-12 loss to Sam Houston before earning a 42-40 thriller over DeRidder.
The Indians then lost four straight: Leesville (48-12), Carencro (71-22), Jennings (43-16) and Crowley (44-36).

Wolves stun Eunice with last second TD

RAYNE – Rayne quarterback Bleyton Francis hit Darrell Weathersby for a 3-yard touchdown with three seconds left to lift the Wolves to a 20-16 win over the No. 6 Eunice Bobcats.
The game started poorly for the Bobcats as Traelyn Cooper returned the kickoff to midfield but holding call erased the play.
After five plays, the Bobcats were forced to punt and the Eunice defense stood tall and forced the Wolves to punt.
