Bobcats visit Wolves

The Bobcats rushed for 217 yards and passed for 105 more in Eunice’s 24-0 season-opening win over Opelousas High.
But in the Bobcats’ 26-10 loss to Jennings, the Bulldogs gained 263 yards on the ground, while Eunice was limited to 150 yards of toal offense.
After Hurricane Harvey forced the cancellation of Rayne’s game against Welsh, the Wolves rolled to a 47-6 win over Lake Charles College Prep last Friday.
“I think they may be a better team than Jennings,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said, “and you see what happened to us against Jennings.”

Trojans rally past Blue Jays

It was a battle to the end as Sacred Heart of Ville Platte scored with 2:07 left in the game to lift the Trojans to a 29-21 win over rival St. Edmund.
Trailing 21-15 as the game moved to the fourth quarter, the Blue Jays moved deep into Trojan territory aided by a pass interference call and several runs by Luke Doucet.
St. Ed’s quarterback Brad Miller capped the 12-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run.
The two-point conversion was stopped but the Jays tied the game 21-21 with 5:7 left.

Bulldogs run past Eunice

The fight between the two historic rivals was to be expected when Jennings visited Eunice High Friday night to take on the No. 7 Bobcats.
The Bulldogs took an early lead against the Bobcats on a 15-yard touchdown run by Darrien Achane to take a 6-0 lead in the opening quarter.
The Bulldogs had stopped a Bobcat drive by forcing a punt after holding the Bobcats at the Eunice 44-yard line.
Jennings took possession of the football at their own 37 and used a strong running attack to advance to the Bobcat 45-yard line.

Lady Cats look to improve

In the third season of their existence, the Eunice High volleyball team is working hard to get better, according to head coach Wayne Fontenot.
“I’m very pleased with the team’s work ethic,” said Fontenot.
“Our goal for this season is to strive for excellence and the girls are working to achieve that goal.”
At practice this past Saturday, Fontenot was focused on teaching fundamentals.
“We’ve spent a lot of time on fundamentals of the game because we have a lot of young kids that are inexperienced.”

No. 7 Bobcats entertain Bulldogs

The past six years, each team has earned three wins.

Last year, Jennings rolled up 573 yards to take a 40-27 victory over the Bobcats.
