LaSalle Tigers finish season with big 34-20 win over Block

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers went into last Friday night’s game looking for answers for the injury plaque that has devastated the Tiger’s roster.

The Tigers have suffered injuries to the quarterback and running back positions. Sophomore running back Zack Dickey has stepped into the quarterback position and given everything possible to the team and that position.

Coming into the Block game, the Tigers were looking for some help for Zack and the offense. So, with all players that have taken a snap this year injured, the coaching staff looked to the offensive line.

Farris’ last minute touchdown pass to Todd gives the Giants a 29-26 win over Caldwell

By Austin Whatley

For the third year in a row the Jena Giants played for a district championship on their home field this past week. Two years ago the Giants defeated the Peabody Warhorses to earn the district championship while last year the Giants lost to Marksville in the district championship.

The Giants were expected to be in this position coming into the season, as they were the favorites to win the district. Their opponent, the Caldwell Spartans, however was not expected to play for a district championship. Many people were picking Caldwell to finish at the bottom of the district standings after they had only 3 wins in the last 3 seasons combined.

LaSalle Tigers fall to Lakeside 55-16

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers headed to Sibley, Louisiana, to take on the Lakeside Warriors this past Friday night in a non-district matchup. This game would be one that, on paper, should be a good high school football game.

Lakeside coming into this season had been on a winless streak for the past three years, but over the summer they hired a new coach and he came in with plans to win. So, Lakeside was able to turn things around this year. They came into this LaSalle game with a winning record and completely dominated the Tigers.

Jena Giants improve to 7-0 with 30-20 win at Peabody

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants traveled to Alexandria this past Friday to take on the Peabody Warhorses in another district matchup. Both teams came into the game on opposite sides of the spectrum as the Giants came in with a lot of momentum and talent starting 6-0 on the season.

Peabody came into the game trying to find their identity with a young team that had talent but only one win on the season. The last two matchups between these two teams turned out to be exciting football games and this one would not disappoint. The captains for the Giants were Lamar Farris, Hunter Nolan, Aaron Boyette, and Troy Dangerfield.

By Greg Jones

The Tigers took the field on defense first and would never look back. Slade Martin, junior linebacker, would have a huge game as he stayed in the backfield of the Gators from the first snap.

Jena Giants start district play with a 31-2 win over Avoyelles

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants started district play this past week as the Avoyelles Mustangs came to town. The Giants would definitely be tested on their focus this week coming off the big win over ASH and having homecoming festivities all week.

The Mustangs came into the game looking to pull off the upset with one of their most talented teams in recent memory. Avoyelles came into the game with a 3-2 record with the only losses coming to Welsh and Livonia who are two well respected programs in the state. A lot of people had the Giants as the favorite to win the district but they also had Avoyelles as a dark horse to maybe win it so this would be a big test for both teams.
