Eunice, Northwest clash Thursday at Bobcat Field

Since 2009, the Bobcats are 7-1 over the Raiders, as Eunice has outscored Northwest 293 to 131 points.
But the Raiders grabbed a 14-7 win last season to earn the district title as Northwest rolled to a 12-2 quarterfinal finish.
The two will clash Thursday night at Bobcat Field as No. 25 Eunice (4-4, 3-2) is fighting to stay in the playoff hunt after three straight district wins over Port Barre, Pine Prairie and Mamou.
The two schools agreed to move the game up to avoid the predicted rainy weather Friday.

Taming the Tigers

BASILE – A combination of a time consuming ground game and a suffocating defensive effort gave the Basile Bearcats a huge 14-0 win over the Oberlin Tigers here Friday night in a key district match-up for both squads.
The Bearcats’ domination on both sides of the ball was evident in their 261 yards of rushing and the fact that they only allowed the Tigers to penetrate into their territory once the entire game.
With the win, Basile moved to 5-3 on the season and 4-1 in district play. This win marked the fourth win in a row for the Bearcats.

Ville Platte goes down to Notre Dame

CROWLEY -- When you play in probably the toughest district in all of Class 2A football, getting wins in league play is a difficult challenge week in and week out.
Such is the case for the Ville Platte High. The Bulldogs moved down a class this year but moved up to the penthouse in terms of district opponents having to face the likes of Kinder, Welsh and Friday night’s opponent, Notre Dame.
That challenge has gotten the best to Ville Platte, as the Bulldogs fell to 0-3 in district competition after a 42-0 loss to the Pioneers. The Bulldogs are now 2-6 overall.

Rayne claims district win over Carencro

What many said would never happen, did so Thursday night as the Rayne High Wolves defeated the Carencro High Bears, 31-21.
The win brings the Wolves to 6-1 overall and 2-1 in district play for the 2017 season thus far.
“I’m so happy for our guys,” stated Rayne High Head Coach Curt Ware following Thursday’s win. “When you have people not believing in us and saying we would not win, it feels good right now looking at that scoreboard.”
