Parish teams stay alive in playoffs
Ruston will now play host to East Ascension (33-2) in a quarterfinal round battle at the Bearcats’ gymnasium on Friday night; tipoff time is set for 7 p.m., and the game will be broadcast live via Ruston’s KLRQ-FM (94.1) station.
To make it one step further in postseason play, however, the ‘Cats had to overcome a sluggish start.
“We came out lackadaisical and were just too relaxed,” said head coach Chris Bush. “It’s all right sometimes to be calm and composed, but we didn’t have a chip on our shoulder at the beginning of the game. We got it back on in the second half.”
