Abbeville hangs on to beat Church Point

For the last three years, the ball has not been bouncing in the Abbeville Wildcats’ favor. On Friday, in the Acadian/Vermilion Parish Jamboree, the ball finally bounced Abbeville’s way.
The Wildcats held on to beat the Church Point Bears, 7-6. The Bears were 40-yards away from possibly winning the game with 1:16 to play. But the Wildcats’ defense stopped the Bears on three straight plays and then the game clock expired, giving AHS the rare jamboree win.
It has been five years since AHS last won a jamboree game.

High school has new 40-second clock; Vermilion Parish Coaches react to extended time

Starting in tonight’s jamborees, high school coaches, players, and fans will have to get used to playing with the new 40-second play clock.
In conjunction with the National Federation of High Schools, the LHSAA has adopted a 40-second play clock; like the ones used in college and the pros, in place of the traditional 25-second clock.
Surrounding states are also adopting the new 40-second clock.
Before, the clock stopped until an official spotted the ball following an offensive play.
Now, the 40-second clock restarts as soon as the play is whistled dead.
