Bobcats down Panthers, 35-6

The Eunice High Bobcats overcame a sluggish start before righting the ship in the second quarter on their way to a 35-6 victory over the Pine Prairie Panthers in District 5-3A football action Friday evening at Bobcat Stadium.
A couple of miscues by the Bobcats allowed the Panthers to gain some momentun in the first quarter on their way to a 6-0 lead in the opening quarter.
Panthers’ running back Jerodd Sims dominated the early action for the Panthers, leading his team to a touchdown with seven minutes remaining in the opening quarter.

Jays, Tigers in district showdown

This week’s clash between the undefeated Tigers and one-loss Blue Jays could determine the District 4-1A title as Oberlin visits St. Edmund.
“We are getting better each week and finally starting to click on offense and find ways to get the yards,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said.
Oberlin (6-0, 3-0) opened the season with non-district wins over Mamou, Delcambre and Oakdale.
The Tigers have earned district victories over Merryville (35-14), Grand Lake (22-3) and Hamilton Christian (32-8).

Bobcats face Panthers

With four games left in the regular season, there is still a lot to be determined as the District 5-3A race continues.
After dropping a heartbreaker to Church Point (22-20), Eunice rebounded with a 30-0 victory over Port Barre.
“We played really well on defense,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said. “We didn’t execute as well on offense, but that is typical after a game that was filled with so much emotion – you can look at Church Point and see what happened to them.”
Northwest rolled 44-28 to hand the Bears their first loss of the season last week.

Jays down Indians

ELTON – The game was scoreless after the first quarter and the Blue Jays led 14-0 at the break before St. Edmund exploded for a 42-0 win over Elton.
“That was good win for us,” St. Edmund said. “We just wore them out in the second half.
“We made some mistakes early on offense but the defense made the stops.”
It was the fourth straight shut out for the Blue Jay defense.
St. Edmund (5-1, 3-0) takes on Oberlin in a District 4-1A showdown Friday at Blue Jay Field.
The Tigers (6-0, 3-0) rolled past Hamilton Christian, 32-8.

Bobcats shut out Devils, 30-0

PORT BARRE – The early going in the District 4-3A encounter between the Eunice High Bobcats and the Port Barre High Red Devils saw both teams struggling to make plays.
The two teams made a couple of plays, but both teams couldn’t avoid the penalty bug with each getting hit with a 15-yard penalty.
Coach Paul Trosclair’s team finally overcame its slow start with the help of running backs Deon Ardoin and Avery Lee, but the Bobcats would use a dropped punt snap by the Devils to score the first points of the game with less than two minutes left in the first quarter.
