By Greg Jones

For the first time in three weeks, the LaSalle Tigers were at home last Friday night to face the Logansport Tigers for a District 3-1A game. Things started off rough for LaSalle as Logansport is ranked number 2 in Class 1A and they were not looking to give up that ranking spot in Olla.

LaSalle opened the game taking the opening kickoff and keeping the ball three plays before T’Keil Anding raced 33 yards for the score. This would be T’Keil’s first game back since getting hurt in week 3 and he would take advantage of this opportunity.

By Austin Whatley
 
The Jena Giants football team traveled to Winn Parish this past Friday to take on the Winnfield Tigers. This would be the first time since the 2007 season that the Giants would play the Tigers at their place. In the 2007 matchup the Winnfield Tigers defeated the Giants 35-6. Those were different times for both programs though as the two teams  were known as long time district rivals with the Tigers dominating the Giants in the prior matchups.

LaSalle Tigers fall to Lakeview, next man up - district opener

By Greg Jones
 
The Tigers came up short again this week this time against the Lakeview Gators. The Tigers looked much better on offense this week, but still lacked on defense due to injuries. The injury bug has bitten the Tigers hard this year. The leading rusher and passer were both out for this game. The starting safety was out on defense too this week.

LaSalle Tigers fall to 1-3 on season after loss last week

By Greg Jones

 

It was the third week in a row that the LaSallle Tigers would be playing at home. The home field advantage has not been kind to the Tigers this season. This game would be no different. The Grant Cougars came into the game 3-0 and off to its best start in school history. Coach Hallman and the gang are playing good football at this time and the Tigers simply are not. This is not a case of whether the Tigers can play good football, but a case of whether they decide to play good football or not .

Moments to Remember

By Billy Fowler

 

Back in the 1950’s, a musical group known as the ‘Four Lads’ had a #1 hit song titled, “Moments to Remember!” Recently on You Tube, I listened to this great old song. The song is about a high school class having a great senior year. I seriously doubt this popular group had any idea this song would go down in history as one of the all time greats! The words to this song are very forceful and almost bring tears to your eyes - words like: ‘the day we tore the goal posts down’, ‘The laughter we all shared will echo through the years’, ‘As time goes by we all go our separate ways but we will have those moments to remember!
