Iota’s Luke Doucet slips into the end zone last week during the Bulldogs’ 49-12 victory over Northwest. Iota will travel to Mamou Friday for a 5-3A contest against the Green Demons at 7 p.m.

Bulldogs not looking past Mamou

The undefeated Iota Bulldogs (4-0) will be on the road this Friday to take on the winless Mamou Demons.
Coming off their biggest win of the season against Northwest Raiders and with a big game against Crowley set for next weekend, it would be easy for the Bulldogs to overlook the Demons, having defeated them 54-12 last season.
However, Iota coach Josh Andrus is working with his players this week to avoid having that happen.

Jays face Tarpons for homecoming

Homecoming week is usually filled with festivities and excitement.
But this week as St. Edmund prepares to take on South Cameron, the Blue Jays are also dealing with the death of Gracie Marie Zaunbrecher.
Following a nearly two-year fight with DIPG, a rare and aggressive brain tumor, the eight-year old passed away Monday morning.
“She put up quite a fight,” Hargroder said. “She was relentless for her battle for life – she was always positive.
“We need to keep that same spirit and remember that nothing is promised.

Bobcats, Bears collide

Heading in to the Church Point game last year, the Bobcats had a 1-3 record.
Not many expected Eunice to begin the 2018 season 4-0 with wins over Opelousas (53-36), Jennings (33-23), Rayne (36-14) and Crowley (36-32).
“We exceeded what we thought was possible,” EHS head coach Paul Trosclair said. “We are estastic about it but we have a big one this week.
“This should be an exciting game for the fans and we are happy we are playing them at home – it is tough winning in Church Point.
“Coach Arceneaux has developed a fine program, no doubt about it.
