Perfection attained

Only two teams in the storied football history of the Halls of Troy have gone through a regular season undefeated. The first Sacred Heart team to do so was in 1949, and the only other team to do so was in 1971. The latter of the two also held the distinction of being ranked number one in Class A, and that accomplishment was only done one other time in school history during the next year in 1972.

With a quick score in the opening minutes of Thursday’s first game of the 2018 Acadia-Vermilion Jamboree, the Rayne High Wolves took the lead and held on for a slim 13-12 jamboree win over Kaplan.
“Like any jamboree, this is the chance to see what we have, evaluate who needs to do what and make adjustments,” state Rayne High Head Coach Curt Ware following Thursday’s Jamboree win over the Kaplan Pirates. “And from the looks of things, we do have adjustments and work to do.”

Crowley holds off North Vermilion with blocked field goal

In a back-and-forth contest, the Crowley Gents desperately needed a big play late in the game during their matchup with North Vermilion in the final game of the Acadia/Vermilion Jamboree Friday night.
And that’s exactly what they got.
Jai’Rece Lewis broke through the line with six seconds left and blocked what would have been a 30-yard, game-winning field goal by Hunter Hulin, allowing the Gents to hold on for a nail-biting 21-19 victory.

Notre Dame’s Joe Pommier makes a tackle Thursday during the Pio’s 28-7 victory over Carencro in the Lafayette Kiwanis Jamboree at Cajun Field.

Smooth start for Notre Dame in Kiwanis Jamboree

With all the changes to personnel entering this season, Notre Dame sure looked ahead of schedule Friday night against Carencro in the Kiwanis Jamboree at Cajun Field. Only three starters return from last year, but it didn’t look like there were any holes to fill.
The Pios offense scored on three straight first half possessions and the defense held the Bears to just eighteen yards and one first down in the half. Notre Dame cruised to a 28-7 win that had even head coach Lewis Cook a little surprised.
