Comets Beat Wilkinson County

By SCC Media Student

Last Friday night, the Comets traveled to Mississippi to take on the Wilkinson County Wildcats. After getting off to a slow start, the Comets were able to make enough plays on offense, defense, and special teams to win 20-0. It was another shutout for the Comet defense, which allowed them to advance to 3-0 on the season.

The Comets fumbled on their first possession giving the Wildcats good field position. The Comets defense stood their ground and forced the Wildcats to punt. A couple of drives later the Comets moved the ball down the field to score their first touchdown. Senior running back Narquez Jones rushed for 20 yards on the drive and scored a touchdown on a 5 yard run. Cameron Fabre added the PAT to give the Comets a 7-0 lead with 5:47 left in the second quarter.

Wildcats Claw Through Three Overtimes To Remain Unbeaten

By Jim Henderson

The St. James Wildcat Football team needed three overtimes to beat the E.D. White Cardinals 27- 21 and improve to a perfect 3-0 on the season.

The loss was the first for the visiting Cardinals and it was a game that saw both teams struggle offensively for two and a half quarters and then forced into three overtime periods to decide the outcome.

“Give E.D. White credit,” said St. James head coach Robert Valdez. “They played with heart and we knew we were going to get their best tonight. But we kept plugging away and for us to finish the way we did was big time.”

The first half was scoreless until the final minute of the second period.

Bulldogs Bounce Back To Beat Marksville

By David Reynaud

The Lutcher Bulldogs picked up their first victory of the 2017 football season when they beat the Marksville Tigers 35-12 last Friday in Lutcher.

Last Friday’s non-district matchup was, to say the least, a tale of two halves.

The first half featured a Bulldog team that struggled to not commit turnovers, struggled to make defensive stops, and a team that struggled to make plays on offense.

However, in the second half, Bulldog fans saw a totally different team as the defense forced several threeand- outs and shut out the Tigers. The offense found the end zone four times, and zero turnovers were committed.

East Ascension’s Jimel London Dominates Bulldogs In Season Opener

By David Reynaud Editor

There was no doubt hheading into last Friday’s football game between the Lutcher Bulldogs and the East Ascension (EA) Spartans that the 5A Spartans were bigger and stronger that the 4A Bulldogs, but the deciding factor in the 30-13 Lutcher loss was not size or strength, it was EA’s stellar play on special teams.

In last week’s postgame interview with Lutcher head coach Dwain Jenkins, he spoke about EA’s Jimel London, who plays cornerback, some quarterback and returns punts and kicks for the Spartans; and Jenkins said he was the type of player who makes you hold your breath when he has the ball in his hand. Well, Jenkins could not have been more on point.

Three In A Row; Bulldogs Have Wildcats’ Number

by David Reynaud 

The Lutcher Bulldog football team, for the third consecutive year, have done something not many teams have been able to do and that is beat the Destrehan Wildcats.

The 5-A Wildcats, who have not lost a regular season game since 2012, fell to the 4-A Bulldogs 23-21 in last Thursday’s Ed Reed/Jarvis Landry jamboree when Bulldog kicker Alec Bland nailed a 22-yard field goal with just :03 remaining in the game.

The game was originally scheduled to be played on Friday, but school officials moved the contest up a day due to the threat of inclement weather from Hurricane Harvey.
