North Vermilion falls to Ascension

Coach Matt Desormeaux’s Ascension Episcopal Blue Gator took momentum from a 95-yard drive and opted to go for the win instead of overtime Friday night here at Patriots Stadium. And boy did the gamble pay off.
Wide receiver Seth Kirstetter took the snap in the wildcat formation, sprinted hard to the right, and fooled everyone as he put on the breaks and threw back across the field to a wide open Ethan Leoni who snuck across the formation from his tight end spot to give AES a 22-21 win over the Patriots.

Gueydan improves to 3-0

GUEYDAN - Could history be in the making at Gueydan High School this football season?
The Bears have improved to 3-0 after crushing South Cameron, 34-0, in a Thursday night game in Gueydan.
It is the best start for a Gueydan team since 2009 when the Bears began the year 4-0 under then head coach Jay Landry.
Second year head coach Roderick Moy is excited his team has jumped out to a great start.
“We met our first goal,” said Moy. “We want a first round home playoff game, and this start was our first step. Now we are heading into the next phase.”

The VC Eagles run onto the field before the Erath game.

Vermilion Catholic handles Erath

The VC Eagles beat parish rival, the Erath’s Bobcats, 34-11, on Friday.
The Eagles got down 3-0 when Erath scored on its first possession. But, only giving up three points sent a message that scoring was not going to come easy against VC’s defense.
Before the field goal, Erath had the ball on VC’s 11 and second down but could not punch it into the end zone.
In the first half, Erath missed scoring opportunities three times. The Bobcats had the ball on the VC 5, twice and came away with no points.
VC head coach Kevin Fouquier was proud of his defense.

Abbeville's Tavion Menard rushed for a team-high 125 yards.

Abbevlle scores 50 points in win over Jeanerette

The Abbeville Wildcats needed to beat the Jeanerette Tigers on Friday.
The week before, the Wildcats committed 11 turnovers and were beaten badly by Church Point.
Abbeville head coach Kevin Kern could not afford to watch his team sink another week.
In the end, Abbeville scored 50 points after being down 14-0 in the first half. The Wildcats went on to win 50-20 against Jeanerette.
Abbeville had more than 400 yards of offense, including two running backs who rushed for more than 120 yards.

THE POST-SIGNAL / Christell Faul
Notre Dame’s Jacob Dore breaks up a pass Friday during the Pios’ 28-14 victory over Teurlings in Lafayette. The Pios’ defense limited the Rebels to just 209 total yards of offense on the night.

Notre Dame continues mastery of Teurlings

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Outweighed on both sides of the line, it mattered not to the Pios lined up against their bigger opponents. The outcome was typical of most past football games against Teurlings.
Notre Dame saw a 78-yard C.J. Thibodeaux touchdown run called back and an interception at the Teurlings 15 overturned. It was that kind of night! But all that mattered was the final score, 28-14, for the fourth straight win over the Rebels and 32nd in 44 all-time meetings.
