Bobcats host Green Demons

The Bobcats and Green Demons are heading in opposite directions this season, but Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said his team can’t look past Mamou if they want to stay in the District 5-3A hunt.
Eunice (6-1,3-1) will entertain Mamou (0-7, 0-4) on Friday.
“Dwight (Collins) will have his players ready to perform,” Trosclair said of the former Bobcat assistant coach. “They are going to play hard as that is Dwight’s mentality and that’s what he brings to the table.”

Blue Jays visit Grand Lake

The Blue Jays travel for their final road trip of the regular season as St, Edmund visits Grand Lake Friday.
St. Edmund (6-1, 4-0) is trying to repeat as District 4-1A champions for the first time since 2003-2004 and a win over the Hornets keeps the Jays atop the standings.
“We are gettting better each week,” Blue Jay head coach Andy Hargroder said. “But we still haven’t played our best game.”
In the 35-6 win over Oberlin last week, Hargroder said he was pleased with the overall execution.

Lady Bobcats hold senior night

The Eunice Lady Bobcats battled on senior night Tuesday, but the visiting Rayne Lady Wolves grabbed a 3-0 win in district play.
Rayne (17-11) won the first game 25-9 en route to the sweep.
The Lady Cats (1-13) held tough early before the Lady Wolves exploded for a 12-1 surge to grab a 15-4 advantage.
Three serves by Rylea Gradney helped Eunice close the gap to 15-7, but Rayne’s Emma Pastor blasted two aces before a service error.
Rayned closed the game with a 6-2 run, sealed with a block by Makayla Dronet for the 25-9 win.

Bobcats down Panthers, 35-6

The Eunice High Bobcats overcame a sluggish start before righting the ship in the second quarter on their way to a 35-6 victory over the Pine Prairie Panthers in District 5-3A football action Friday evening at Bobcat Stadium.
A couple of miscues by the Bobcats allowed the Panthers to gain some momentun in the first quarter on their way to a 6-0 lead in the opening quarter.
Panthers’ running back Jerodd Sims dominated the early action for the Panthers, leading his team to a touchdown with seven minutes remaining in the opening quarter.

Jays, Tigers in district showdown

This week’s clash between the undefeated Tigers and one-loss Blue Jays could determine the District 4-1A title as Oberlin visits St. Edmund.
“We are getting better each week and finally starting to click on offense and find ways to get the yards,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said.
Oberlin (6-0, 3-0) opened the season with non-district wins over Mamou, Delcambre and Oakdale.
The Tigers have earned district victories over Merryville (35-14), Grand Lake (22-3) and Hamilton Christian (32-8).
