Bobcats visit Belle Chasse for second round of playoffs

It was sweet revenge for the Bobcats as No. 10 Eunice cruised to a 36-0 win over Bastrop to open the Class 4A playoffs.
Last season, the Rams grabbed an 8-7 win over Eunice in the second round.
“It was big time motivation,” Eunice High head coach Andre Vige said of the rematch against the Rams. “Any time some one ends your season, it sticks with you.
“The fact we lost by one point, it was hard to deal with,” he said. “We thought we should have won that game – so we wanted payback this year.”
