Blue Jays face winlessTarpons

With every win, the Blue Jays move closer to their goal of winning the District 4-1A championship.
St. Edmund (3-1, 1-0) earned a 28-7 win over rival Basile last week and visit winless South Cameron in another district battle Friday night.
“Even with three wins, the next win is the most important,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said. “We need to keep winning.”
The key to the Blue Jay offense so far this season has been the ground attack as St. Edmund has rushed for over 1,200 yards in the first four games.

Notre Dame defense smothers Panthers

They came into the game having averaged 50 points scored in three wins, averaging over 500 yards on offense and heralded as one of the high powered offensive teams in Acadiana. They left the game still looking for answers to a Notre Dame defense that allowed Catholic High just 123 yards of offense and no points.
Notre Dame pounded out a 37-nothing win to go 3-0 on the season. It’s hard to imagine a more surprising two week stretch for Pios coach Lewis Cook.
