VC gets good news, bad news on Friday

OPELOUSAS - Vermilion Catholic’s Friday started out with solid news: Senior quarterback JT Lege is not out for the season after all.
“It’s been a roller coaster of a week, that’s for sure,” VC head coach Brady Thomas said. “I’m happy that he got that good news today.
“It is going to depend on therapy and how well he responds to that,” he added.
However, a tough Friday night for the Vermilion Catholic Screamin’ Eagles ended with a 22-6 loss to the Opelousas Catholic Vikings.

Delcambre quarterback Colt Dooley (4) scored a touchdown on a four yard run.

Delcambre falls to Oberlin

DELCAMBRE - The Delcambre Panthers had to wait a week before they opened the 2017 season because of Hurricane Harvey. That wait seemed to affect the Panthers on Friday.
“It hurt us,” said Broussard. “We had no practice. I am not making excuses, but I feel losing that week set us back. Our guys came out and fought hard tonight.”
Most teams played last week, but South Cameron, Delcambre’s first game, had to cancel the game.
On Friday against a bigger and faster Oberlin Tigers, the Panthers dropped a 44-6 decision.

Malik Criner had his second straight big game, rushing for 144 yards in the Friday win. In two games, Criner has rushed for 293 yards.

The Patriots crushed the Franklin Hornets, 49-20, on Friday night.
Two games into the season, North Vermilion has already equaled the amount of wins it won all of last year.
One has to go back to 2009 to find the last time the Patriots began the year 2-0. It was under former head coach Stephen Lotief. His team went 3-0 in 2009.
Since 2004, North Vermilion has began the year 2-0 only four times.
