South Plaquemines was again the recipient of West St. John’s wrath.
Just like a year ago when the Rams beat the Hurricanes following a season-opening loss to rival St. James, West St. John took its frustrations out on South Plaquemines with a 26-6 road win Friday night.
After being shut out in the season opener last week at St. James, senior running back Kylan Duhe put the team on his back with dominant performance.
Duhe finished the night with 24 carries and 200 yards rushing, one of which went for a score. He added to his performance with 40 receiving yards and one touchdown reception.
“He’s exciting to watch,” said Rams coach Brandon Walters. “He is a soldier in every sense of the word.”
West St. John (1-1) struck first on pass from junior quarterback D’Andre Gaudia, who connected with Carrington Clark for a 21-yard score in the first quarter, giving the Rams a 6-0 lead.
The Hurricanes found some momentum in the second quarter, scoring on a 4-yard touchdown pass.

The next three scores of the game all involved Duhe.
The first came on a 7-yard run that gave the Rams a 12-6 lead.
West St. John didn’t look back and extended their advantage when Gaudia and Duhe connected on a 39-yard pass, making the score 20-6 following the only successful two-point conversion of the night.
The final blow Duhe delivered to the Hurricanes came on a fourth quarter rush from the South Plaquemines 1-yard line, finalizing the Rams 26-6 victory.
“We needed some positivity this week after the big letdown last week,” said Walters.
