“We have a good mixture of veterans and young guys and it has paid off for us.
“Our guys step out there and believe they can win.”

Coach Matt Desormeaux’s Ascension Episcopal Blue Gator took momentum from a 95-yard drive and opted to go for the win instead of overtime Friday night here at Patriots Stadium. And boy did the gamble pay off.
Wide receiver Seth Kirstetter took the snap in the wildcat formation, sprinted hard to the right, and fooled everyone as he put on the breaks and threw back across the field to a wide open Ethan Leoni who snuck across the formation from his tight end spot to give AES a 22-21 win over the Patriots.

Vermilion Catholic handles Erath

The VC Eagles beat parish rival, the Erath’s Bobcats, 34-11, on Friday.
The Eagles got down 3-0 when Erath scored on its first possession. But, only giving up three points sent a message that scoring was not going to come easy against VC’s defense.
Before the field goal, Erath had the ball on VC’s 11 and second down but could not punch it into the end zone.
In the first half, Erath missed scoring opportunities three times. The Bobcats had the ball on the VC 5, twice and came away with no points.
VC head coach Kevin Fouquier was proud of his defense.
