FOOTBALL BRIEFS: East Iberville and White Castle lose
Ascension Catholic makes Friday a long night for East Iberville
Ascension Catholic scored in three out of four quarters while the East Iberville Tigers were left scoreless in last Friday's home game against the visiting Bears, 55-0.
Stats weren't submitted by the Bears, but the Tigers reported Ascension Catholic scored three touchdowns in the first quarter, were held scoreless in the second but came roaring back in the second half with three TDs in the third quarter and another two in the closing quarter.
Leading the Tigers on the offensive side of the ball was Daquan Ray, who picked up 39 yards with 8 carries, followed closely by Dedrick Wilson with 10 rushes for 20 yards.
Others contributing to the Tigers' offensive output were Rondell Daniels with 9 carries for 9 yards, Junior Williams, 3 carries for 5 yards, Lyndell Joseph who carried the ball three times for three yards, Ricky Morris with one carry for four yards and Blake Barbay finished the offensive stats with a single carry for three yards.
In the passing game, the Tigers struggled. Lyndell Joseph threw two incompletioins while Carlyle Joseph had only one catch in four tosses, picking up a single yard with that lone reception.
East Iberville Tigers will make the long trip to Kentwood for this Friday's game. The kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
White Castle High loses Friday night's matchup to Kentwood
White Castle's Bulldogs were held scoreless against Kentwood High's Kangaroos, losing by a 31--0 margin.
Statistics were provided in detail for the Bulldogs but none were available for the Kangaroos.
Quarterback Kevin Coleman only completed one of 11 passes for 5 yards -- it went to Javier Batiste -- but threw two interceptions.
The Bulldogs running game didn't fare much better and Coleman's negative 39 yards, an average of almost 10, on four carries, indicates the Kangaroos kept the White Castle quarterback under pressure throughout the game.
Most successful on the ground for the Bulldogs was Jeremie Richard, who earned 60 yards on 14 carries while Demarius Stewart only mustered a single yard with six rushes. Javier Batiste picked up a yard on two carries.
Likely the only exciting plays the Bulldogs pulled off for the night were the two punt returns by Tyron Simon for a total of 65 yards.
White Castle will travel to Plaquemine to face St. John this Friday in a game set to kick off at 7 p.m.
