Blue Jays play for district title at Merryville

The Blue Jays have already earned a share of the District 4-1A title.
But St. Edmund can win its first championship since 2014 with a victory Thursday night at Merryville.
“This a very important game,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said. “We don’t want to share the district championship with anyone.”
The Panthers (5-4, 4-2) have won four straight district games after falling to Oberlin and Basile.
Merryville has earned wins over Grand Lake (22-14), South Cameron (30-7), Hamilton Christian (22-20) and Elton (36-32).

LAKE CHARLES – The Blue Jays sealed at least a share of the District 4-1A title Friday night as St. Edmund grabbed a 280-12 win over Hamilton Christian.

Peyton Marcantel’s PAT gave the Jays a 7-0 lead with 5:34 left in the first period.

Eunice, Northwest clash Thursday at Bobcat Field

Since 2009, the Bobcats are 7-1 over the Raiders, as Eunice has outscored Northwest 293 to 131 points.
But the Raiders grabbed a 14-7 win last season to earn the district title as Northwest rolled to a 12-2 quarterfinal finish.
The two will clash Thursday night at Bobcat Field as No. 25 Eunice (4-4, 3-2) is fighting to stay in the playoff hunt after three straight district wins over Port Barre, Pine Prairie and Mamou.
The two schools agreed to move the game up to avoid the predicted rainy weather Friday.
