St. Charles Catholic has won a lot of hard-fought games over the years by waiting for an opponent to make a mistake and then being able to capitalize. For most of Friday night’s game at St. James, it appeared as though that mistake might ever come. But one play after St. James halted a Comets drive when a pass to tight end Jacob Ganote came up a yard short or fourth-and-8 at the... Keep Reading

We talked about... Keep Reading

The never-ending saga around Hahnville and Andrew Robison’s eligibility added a new chapter earlier in the week. An arbitrator ruled in favor of Hahnville and Robison, making the senior eligible to play for the Tigers in their regular-season finale against H.L. Bourgeois on Friday night in Houma and into the playoffs. The arbitrator ruled the finding of illegal recruitment was arbitrary and capricious and that the family did complete a bona fide...

If there is any team in 2018 that has a true sense of Homecoming, it has to be the West St. John Rams. After beating Bonnabel 40-20 at home in Week 3, the Rams have been away from Edgard ever since. West St. John, ranked No. 8 in the Class 1A poll, played five consecutive road games before having an open date last week. The Rams will host St. Martin’s Episcopal for Homecoming in only WSJ...

When Terrebonne visits Destrehan on Friday night in a battle of Top 10 teams, the District 7-5A title will be one the line but the Wildcats also will keep their eyes on another prize. “On our board, you see ‘district championship’ real small but behind that is ‘No. 2 seed,’ and that’s what we need to shoot for,” Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux said.

While most observers will look toward Week 10 games that feature district championships on the line, Riverside Academy will quietly host North Central on Friday night. The Rebels go into the non-district game 2-6 while North Central is 1-8. Records can be misleading and Riverside’s may well be a case in point. “When you look at our six losses, if you go through the record of each one, Southern Lab is 9-1, which... Keep Reading

After St. Charles’ loss to East Ascension, the Comets have won their last four games. With last week’s 14-12 win over De La Salle, SCC goes into Friday’s game at St. James 6-3 overall, 4-0 in district,... Keep Reading
