The Blue Jays moved up to fourth place in the Division IV power rankings after a 35-34 win over Natchitoches Central – the first victory for St. Edmund over a Class 5-A program.

Bobcats battle Wolves for homecoming

It’s homecoming week at Eunice High as the Bobcats open District 5-4A play against the Rayne Wolves.

“We didn’t play assignment football for a full four quarters on defense as we gave up some big plays in the passing game.”
