Headed to State Playoffs

Headed to State Playoffs

It’s been 20 years since the Jena Giants had a playoff game after Thanksgiving. It was the year 2000 when a talented Jena squad played the eventual Class 3A State Champs, Notre Dome, in a quarterfinal game in Crowley that ended one of the Giants’ most prolific seasons of all time.

Due to all the complications revolving around COVID-19 this season, the Giants will once again be playing a playoff game after Thanksgiving, however, it will be the first round of the LHSAA playoffs and not the quarterfinals.

The Giants, ranked #11 in Class 3A, will host Kenner, ranked #22, at Guy Campbell Memorial Stadium Friday night with kickoff set for 7 p.m.

LaSalle doesn’t qualify for more stadium capacity

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced in a news conference Thursday, October 22, that he is loosening restrictions for football stadiums; unfortunately, LaSalle Parish does not qualify.

He said the percent positivity for parishes has to be less than 5% for two weeks to allow stadiums to increase from 25% to 50% capacity. Right now, only 26 parishes qualify to have their high school stadiums at 50% under the order Edwards signed, effective Friday, October 23.

If those parishes fall back to 10% test positivity, the occupancy goes back down to 25%.

The LaSalle Tigers traveled to the campus of Northwestern State University to take on the St. Mary’s Tigers on their homecoming night.

St Mary’s jumped out on top early 21- 0, but the Tigers from Olla never backed down. St Mary’s offense would never get back into the end zone the rest of the game.

The LaSalle defense would rise to the occasion and get into the end zone twice on this night. The lone offensive touchdown by the LaSalle Tigers would come when Brady Hough found Cole Derr racing down the sideline for a 44-yard touchdown. Brady would find Blake Rogers for the two-point conversion.
