The Jena Giants started district play this past week as they traveled to take on the Caldwell Spartans. These two teams have given fans some exciting games to watch the last two seasons with the Giants winning both matchups and going on to win the district championship.

This season the Giants would come in with a 3-2 record looking to start district play on a good note. Caldwell would come in looking to do the same after losing their first game of the season the week before against Pineville. The captains for the Giants would be Wesley Humphries, Daniel Moss, Trelon Jones, and Cameron Jackson.

The Giants would win the toss and would elect to defer to the 2nd half. The Giants defense would step up in a big way as they would play excellent all game. The Giants would give up a couple of touchdowns in the first half but they would both come on short fields for Caldwell.

The LaSalle Tigers for the second week in a row would have a very tough night finding the end zone. The Tigers fell to the Jena Giants 34-0 in the last non-district game on the schedule.

The Giants used a massive offensive line to push an opening for Trelon Jones, who would score all five times for the Giants. On Offense the Tigers would find yards hard to come by after the first drive.

The Jena Giants and LaSalle Tigers renewed the LaSalle parish rivalry football game this past Friday night. The two teams have played many times over the years in jamborees but this would be the first regular season contest between the two since the 2000 season.

Both teams have represented LaSalle parish very well in their respective classes as they both have made the playoffs many times over the past ten seasons. Both teams would come into the game looking to get back on the winning track as they both lost by blowout games in prior week, with La-Salle losing to Franklin Parish 56-6 while the Giants lost to Tioga 40-13.

Both teams would also look to get some good momentum going into district play, as this would be the final non-district game for both teams.

The LaSalle Tigers knew coming into this contest with the 4A Franklin Parish Patriots that they would need a flawless game to come away with a victory. Franklin Parish had the size and strength factor in this contest won when they got off the bus.

The Patriots were here to prove a point and they did just that. That point would be that there is a reason for classifications in High School football.
