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.

Blue Jays visit Elton

ELTON – The District 4-1A battle will begin to take shape this week as St. Edmund visits Elton.
The Indians lost their first three games against Lake Arthur (42-13), East Beauregard (321-18) and Rosepine (43-20).
Elton then earned district wins over Grand Lake (42-16) and Hamilton Christian (16-0).
“They are very athletic and big up front,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said of the Indians, “They also can spread it out – so we have to plan for anything.
“They pull you in to stop the run and then throw it to their big receiver.”

Bobcats look to rebound

PORT BARRE – Eunice led 20-6 against Church Point as the game moved to the fourth quarter, but the Bears exploded for 16 points in the final period to rally for a 22-20 win over the Bobcats.
“I don’t ever remember us giving up a two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said. “But give Church Point credit, they did it.
“We needed one more score – either a field goal or a touchdown,” he said. “I thought we had it but we had a touchdown called back that really hurt.

Blue Jays run

For the third week in a row, the Blue Jay defense recorded a shut out as St. Edmund rolled to a 31-0 homecoming win over South Cameron.
“It was a great job to earn the win,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said. “The defense played lights out and the offense got a bunch a yards in the first half.
“We need to keep it going the rest of the district run.”
St. Edmund outgained South Cameron 453-53 and limited the Tarpons to just two first downs in the game.
