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.

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.

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.

Giants roll on to 5-0 with blowout victory over ASH

By Austin Whatley

The Jena Giants faced a huge test this past Friday as they welcomed a 5A team to Guy Campbell Memorial Stadium for the first time in program history. Class 5A is the highest classification in Louisiana High School Athletics which means the schools with the most kids are in this classification.

The 5A team that came to Jena this past week was the ASH Trojans out of Alexandria. ASH came into the game with a 2-2 record but had played one of the toughest schedules in the state up to that point. When these two teams agreed to play each other it was put on the schedule as the game of the week in Cenla because of the talent on the two teams and it would not disappoint.
