Cougars edged, 20-14

Cedar Creek battles No. 1 OCS tough
10-1.jpg

Only five positions separate No. 1 Monroe Ouachita Christian and No. 6 Cedar Creek in the Class 1A Louisiana Sports Writers Association weekly poll.
Only six points were the differential in Friday night’s showdown for first place in District 2-1A between I-20 rivals at Cougars Stadium.
So it was only fitting that, following a 20-14 hard-earned victory by the Eagles (9-0., 3-0), the two teams gathered as one at mid-field.

’Cats bash Chiefs, 21-6

Ruston gains first District 2-5A victory
10-2.jpg

Reeling in the midst of consecutive losses to Ouachita and at West Monroe, the Ruston Bearcats were looking to bounce back on to the Class 5A playoff track Friday with a home game against No. 15 ranked Natchitoches Central.
Junior running Alexio Williams-Hargrove proved he was the Bearcats’ “engine that could” get them back on that track, as he steamrolled his way for 233 rushing yards on 33 carries, including a 33-yard touchdown, to lead Ruston to a 21-6 win over the Chiefs at James Stadium.
The win put Ruston at 5-4 overall and 1-2 in District 1-5A heading into next week’s regular-season finale at Pineville (4-5, 0-3).

in

The Louisiana Tech soccer team (8-7-4, 1-5 WAC) plays host to Hawaii (4-10-1, 3-1-1 WAC) at 1 p.m. today at Lady Techster Soccer Complex on “Senior Day. “
The game will be the final Western Athletic Conference meeting between the two programs as the Rainbow Wahine leave for the Big West Conference next year.
“There needs to be no motivation coming from me for this game,” said head coach Kevin Sherry. “If you can get motivated playing for the seniors and a spot in the conference tournament then there is something seriously wrong.”

Duck hunters: good, bad news

in

Does it not make you a bit jittery when somebody tells you he has good news – and bad news for you? When this happens, which do you prefer to hear first? I usually like to get the bad stuff out of the way so I can look forward to hearing something good that follows.
If you’re a duck hunter, I sort of hate to switch things around for you but it seems best to start with the good and hope the bad won’t be too much of a let down.

Recalling sweet memories of Halloween

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

Boo! It’s Halloween, right?
I decided at my age, it’s about time I knew exactly what we were celebrating. I’ve always known it had to do with witches, ghosts, goblins and evil spirits, but never really knew why it was faithfully observed every year. Then, I decided anybody could look at Google and find the same information I could, so I’m not going there.
