Giant’s comeback effort falls short in Alexandria

Jena Giant Jermarcus Hammock (4) lunges to catch the pass for a touchdown during the Jena vs. Menard away game last week.
By Greg Jones The weather was perfect and the stands were packed for what was about to be a great high school football game. Jena won the toss and deferred the kickoff to the second half. Menard took possession of the initial kickoff and could only manage 5 plays before they were forced to punt by the Jena defense. On the ensuing kickoff Jena could only manage one play before John Leglue, senior lineman, recovered a fumble and ran 17 yards for the touchdown. The extra point attempt was no good and Menard led early 6-0.

Jena beats Block in a wet defensive slugfest

Jena Giants Terrance Purvis (7) and Senior Brady Dearmon (58) fight against the Block Bear line during the Jena vs. Block game last week.
By Greg Jones
 
It was a wet Friday night of football, but not near as wet as it was going to get in Jonesville. The sprinkle of rain didn’t seem to bother either team as the game was getting underway. Jena took the opening kickoff and kept the ball only one play, but this one play was different from the previous two weeks’ opening drives.

Tigers reign; beat Delhi 24-14

LaSalle Tiger Quarterback Senior Cole Hendrix (20) hands off the ball to fellow Tiger Senior Brandon Johnson (10) in the downpour during the LaSalle vs. Delhi home game last week.
By Mark Richardson
 
The LaSalle Tigers fought the elements and the Delhi Bears last Friday night, sloshing their way to a 24-14 victory in the middle of a monsoon. Playing in weather better suited for ducks, the Tigers took the opening kickoff at their own 25 yard line. After a 22 yard run by Brandon Johnson and a 31 yard run by QB Cole Hendrix, Hendrix capped off the 5 play 75 yard drive with a 2 yard TD run 1:34 into the game. The extra point was a 3 yard pass from Hendrix to Tristan Gilliam and the Tigers led 8-0.
