LED PHS…Senior Deryl Lewis poured in 25 points last week to lead Plaquemine High to its win over Port Allen.

The Plaquemine Green Devils took sole possession of the District 9-3A championship Tuesday night after a 48-38 win over the Lutcher Bulldogs.

Plaquemine can claim the district title with a win at St. Charles on Friday night.

Marquel Robinson powered the Green Devil scoring effort.

The Green Devils had a small lead over the Bulldogs at halftime, but they pulled away from Lutcher in the third and led by as much as 12 points in the fourth quarter.

The win avenged a loss by the Green Devils at Lutcher in the first round of district fare.
