After having played in Week 10, Destrehan and Terrebonne were more than familiar with each other in last week’s Class 5A quarterfinals. So familiar, second-seeded Destrehan managed to eke out only a 3-0 lead at halftime against the visiting Tigers. “I think both teams were trying to feel each other out,” said Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux.

When Destrehan defeated Terrebonne 49-20 last week to show they were again the kingpins of District 7-5A, the Wildcats had more than a league title in mind. “We had been preaching to our kids all week it was more important to keep the No. 2 ranking instead of that district championship,” Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux said. “We didn’t put a whole lot of emphasis on it.
