It was mission accomplished for Lutcher in several different ways as the Bulldogs dominated visiting Tara 54-22 in District 6-4A action Friday night.

We knew Tara had Chris Avery, a running... Keep Reading

Destrehan’s game against visiting Jesuit on Friday night is akin to a marriage of convenience. Both teams had bye week their respective districts – 7-5A for Destrehan and the Catholic League for Jesuit – in Week 9 of the season. In looking to fill the void, Evangel Christian was one of the schools will to play that week, but the game would have to be in up north. So, the Wildcats and Blue... Keep Reading
