Bobcats brace for Indians

After a last-second 20-16 loss at Rayne, the Bobcats look to regroup Friday against the Washington – Marion Indians.
“We didn’t play very well,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said.
I thought we would be excited to play the first district game, but it didn’t seem like it.
“We need to refocus and play like we know we can.”
Washington – Marion (1-5) began the season with a 34-12 loss to Sam Houston before earning a 42-40 thriller over DeRidder.
The Indians then lost four straight: Leesville (48-12), Carencro (71-22), Jennings (43-16) and Crowley (44-36).
