Erath gets rare victory over Kaplan

ERATH - The Erath Bobcats were able to put an end to two streaks the Kaplan Pirates had over the boys from Erath.
With the 20-12 win over Kaplan on Friday, the Bobcats ended Kaplan's 20-game district winning streak that dates back to 2015.
The other streak to end was the dominance Kaplan had over Erath the last 12 years. The previous time Erath beat Kaplan was in 2007 under then-head coach Jacob Byler.
Erath senior quarterback Luke LeBlanc, who rushed for 124 yards and scored two touchdowns, was around six years old the last time Erath beat Kaplan in 2007.

Iota too much for North Vermilion

LEROY – Midway through the season, and with District 4-4A play a week away, the North Vermilion Patriots stand poised for their new adventures in Class 4A.
But what coach Brett Blakey’s squad saw Friday night against Iota provided some sobering moments in a 30-7 defeat.
“At 3-2, I think we’re better than some expected us to be,” Blakey said. “For the most part, the guys are doing a great job. But we’ve got to learn how to finish the job. We had trouble with Ascension (Episcopal) and Erath, but were able to pull those out.

The Eagles have now beaten Abbeville, Kaplan, and the Erath Bobcats became the latest parish victim.
For the second week in a row, VC jumped out to a big lead and cruised to a victory.
