Another slow start hampered East St. John in it’s narrow 16-14 loss to McDonogh 35 last Friday. That’s something that must be corrected going into the start of District 7-5A play when the 1-2 Wildcats travel to take on Central Lafourche at 7 p.m. Friday in Mathews. “We need to start faster with district coming along. That’s been hurting us a lot, all the way back to the... Keep Reading

Although St. Charles Catholic’s offense continues to struggle, the Comets moved to 2-1 on the season with last week’s 21-6 win over Wilkinson County. The Comets led only 7-6 through three quarters but managed to pull out the win by holding Wilkinson County to 57 yards on offense. St. Charles also was without quarterback Justin Dumas, who was out while under concussion protocol. Sutton Bourgeois, who saw action a year ago at... Keep Reading

Although Riverside Academy lost 37-34 last week to Rummel to fall to 0-3, Kevin Dizer saw something in his football team he hadn’t seen the previous two weeks. “We hadn’t fought for 48 minutes and that’s all I was looking for. This past Friday, I saw the team I envisioned us being. I think we have something to build off of now that we’ve got that 48 minutes... Keep Reading

It’s a good thing West St. John won it’s home game last week against Bonnabel because the Rams will need to savor it for quite some time. The Rams played the first of only two home games this season in their 40-20 victory over Bonnabel. West St. John will not play again at home until Week 10, meaning the Rams are embarking on the start of a five-game road trip. With an... Keep Reading

In St. Charles Parish, it’s the annual Destrehan-Hahnville game, which will be played on the West Bank on Friday and has everything that goes along with being a nationally-recognized rivalry. “It is what it is. It will be interesting. The big thing is I’m more worried about us and how we... Keep Reading

Lutcher’s 29-26 defeat at the hands of rival St. James may have been a thriller, but it still goes down as a loss for the Bulldogs. “For a fan, it’s a great game to watch. For a coach, it’s not always a great game to be involved in,” Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins said. “Unfortunately, a game like that – especially in a rivalry game – there... Keep Reading

While Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux wouldn’t term it a “revenge” or “payback” win, the Wildcats coach had to be content to capture a 31-3 victory over St. Charles Catholic last Friday. “Overall, I was very pleased,” said Robicheaux. “Coach (Wayne) Stein (St. Charles’ defensive coordinator) just does a good job of getting his kids lined up and they don’t make a whole lot...

In the aftermath of Hahnville’s 26-0 loss to John Ehret last Friday, Tigers coach Nick Saltaformaggio is scratching his head searching for answers. Not only did Ehret shut out Hahnville, the Patriots held the Tigers’ struggling offense to 165 total yards. That’s a pattern that has been going on for weeks. “If you go back to the 15-minute quarter against Northshore (in a scrimmage), the jamboree, the first game and... Keep Reading

After playing the first two games on the road, Riverside Academy will play at home for the first time under new coach Kevin Dizer. The Rebels face a tough chore in taking on powerful Rummel out of the Catholic League. Riverside enters the game 0-2 after opening the season with road losses to Southern Lab and Barbe. “It’s a big deal,” Dizer said of playing at home. “Ideally, you don... Keep Reading

Not a whole lot of coaches get a chance to go back home and win one for the ole alma mater. Brandon Brown was one of the few after his East St. John Wildcats defeated West Jefferson 41-6 last Friday at Hoss Memtsas Stadium in Harvey. “It was very emotional,” Brown said. “It was hard for me to just hold back the emotions and once that (scoreboard) went to zero, just to...
