E.D. White too much for VC

First-year Vermilion Catholic coach Brady Thomas had a date to fill on his 2017 schedule when he took over the Screaming Eagles’ reins.
His choice of Class 4A member E.D. White shows how strongly Thomas wants his team to be able to compete, a matchup that could pay dividends down the road.
On Friday night, though, his Eagles fell behind 21-0 after one quarter and were no match for the visiting Cardinals, who departed with a 35-7 victory.

Four minutes into the game, VC led 21-0. At the end of the first quarter it was 35-0. At halftime, it was 49-0.
When the game was over, the score was 49-6.
At halftime, VC freshman quarterback Drew Lege threw for 352-yards and amazing six touchdowns. He completed 18 of 23 passes and threw no interceptions in the first half.
