Bobcats to battle Pirates in Class 3-A semifinals

It was 1997 and 1998 the last times the Eunice Bobcats advanced to the state semifinals.
That season, Eunice rolled to a 21-0 win over Bastrop to earn back-to-back trips to the 4A championship game.
“It is hard to get to this point,” Eunice head coach Paul Trosclair said. “A lot of coaches coach for a long time and never get to the semifinals.
“If it turns out like the last two semifinals, I will be happy.”
Last week, No. 2 Eunice cruised to a 41-12 victory over No. 26 Madison Prep.

“It has been a good year as we advanced to the quarterfinals,” the coach said. “I hope we get to play some more.”
