Bobcats visit Berwick to open playoffs

The No. 22 Eunice Bobcats will travel to No. 11 Berwick in the opening round of the Class 3-A playoffs.
The Bobcats (5-5, 4-3) struggled with a 1-4 start before winning four of their last five games.
“We battled through adversity after the slow start to the season and and wanted to finish on a five game winning streak but we came up a foot short,” Trosclair said of the 34-27 overtime loss to Iota in the regular season finale.
“But it is important that we recover and compete as we start fresh Friday.”

IOTA – The battle for second place in District 5-3A resulted in an offensive explosion between the Iota High Bulldogs and the Eunice High Bobcats here Friday.

The action began on the first play from scrimmage when Bobcat quarterback Jayden Brasseaux found receiver Jordan Ledet open down the field for 71-yard touchdown.
The PAT failed, but the Cats had a 6-0 lead.

“We are happy that we won, but we know we have a lot of work yet to be done.”

Bobcats, Dogs clash in finale

The District 5-3A title has been won by the Church Point Bears, but the Bobcats and Bulldogs still have plenty of reasons to fight in the regular season finale Friday at Iota.
Eunice is coming off a crucial 14-7 win over Northwest as the Bobcats are riding a four-game winning streak.
“If we win Friday, we will be in sole possession of second place in district, which is impressive considering what we went through this season,” Eunice High head coach Paul Trosclair said. “I am really pleased with our seniors and what they did to keep this ship afloat.”
