Tigers fall to Elton Indians Friday in a close one, 38-34

By Greg Jones
 
 
The LaSalle Tigers traveled to Elton in south Louisiana last Friday night to take on the Elton Indians in the first round of the LHSAA Class 1A football playoffs. That trip would be the last for the Tigers this year, but it wasn’t until 40 seconds left in the game that Elton knew they would be playing in the next round. If you were not in Elton on this Friday night then you missed a great high school football game. The Tigers were underdogs from the moment the playoff pairings came out. Most socalled football guru’s had the Tigers losing this game by 45 points. I’ve personally never seen a more focused team of Tigers. That 45-point underdog role set this team on fire.

Seniors shine on senior night as Giants defeat Bolton, 55-7

By Austin Whatley
 
The Jena Giants honored the seniors this past Friday night as the Bolton Bears came to town. The seniors on the football team that were honored were Parker Fink, Craig Walker, David Wilson, Darian Jones, Jonathon Brown, Quint Dejean, and Chris Taylor. The Giants would look at this game as a tune up game for the playoffs. The Bolton Bears who have only won one game in the last two years came in under new head coach Mark Teague. Coach Teague has done an excellent job this season but the Bears are a very young team who are looking to build up their program.

LaSalle Tigers fall to St. Mary’s 47-14 last Friday

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers went into the contest with St. Mary’s last Friday with the belief that they could compete with St. Mary’s and they wanted very badly to win it. St. Mary’s simply outmanned the thin troops of the LaSalle Tigers. This game had lots of underlying stories to it. This was the first game back on the turf for T’Keil Anding after tearing up his knee in Turpin Stadium his sophomore year, could he shake the ghost of that injury?
