The waiting game for Andrew Robison continues. After a Temporary Restraining Order was granted on Thursday reinstating his eligibility, Robison was held out of Hahnville's 28-15 loss Friday against rival Destrehan. Hahnville and St. Charles Public Schools officials consulted throughout the day with the law firm Hammonds, Sills, Adkins, and Guice as to what the ramifications or possible additional sanctions the LHSAA could levy if Robison played. "We want to respect the LHSAA and... Keep Reading

Taking on a team that had gotten off to a 3-0 start and had aspirations of a District 7-5A contender, East St. John would seem to need an all-around effort to defeat Central Lafourche on Friday night in Mathews. The Wildcats pretty much got it. East St. John produced two rushing touchdowns, three scores via the air and added an interception for a score. A harassing ESJ defense also tossed a shutout as the...

With Lutcher leading 31-28 and St. Amant in possession of the ball in the second overtime, it came as no surprise that the Gators’ K.J. Franklin got the call on first down. Franklin had score twice earlier in the game and was perhaps the top nemesis the Lutcher defense faced all night. Franklin fumbled the ball on first down and Lutcher defensive back Rashaud Long recovered, allowing the Bulldogs to claim a three-point... Keep Reading

For most of the afternoon, the St. Charles Comets defense contained Country Day’s high-powered offense. Then came the final five minutes of the game. A one-handed grab by Country Day receiver Christian Becnel allowed the Cajuns to get out of a deep hole when pinned at their own 7-yard line midway in the fourth quarter with St. Charles leading 10-0. Country Day concluded the drive with a 20-yard Andrew Lopez field goal to... Keep Reading

If Nick Saltaformaggio was antsy about not being on the sideline for Hahnville’s first three games of the season, that’s nothing compare to what it might be like when he is not around for the Hahnville-Destrehan game Friday night in Boutte. “This is horrible this week,” Saltaformaggio said. “I knew it would be horrible but it’s not only horrible because it’s Destrehan week, it...

Looking to reach the .500 mark after an 0-2 start, the Lutcher Bulldogs host a St. Amant team with a problem every coach wishes he had. “I just thing Coach (David) Oliver does a great job of building a program,” Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins said. “There are just so many kids on their roster. They are 100 deep (grades) 10-12 and then there is another 60-70 that play freshmen football. “One of the... Keep Reading

St. James coach Robert Valdez sounded like a boxing analyst in the aftermath of the Wildcats’ 8-27 loss last Friday at rival E.D. White. “We just couldn’t give them the knockout blow,” Valdez said. St. James led 21-14 but was unable to add another score to make it a two-possession game and allow for a bit of breathing room. “I was always afraid with Brandon Legendre at quarterback...
