|Playoff hopes fading for HHS - can Tigers turn it around?
October 23, 2006 at 5:45 pm
What’s next for 5-2 Hahnville? A key District 5-5A match-up against the 3-4 John Ehret Patriots, that’s what. Games don’t get any bigger than this as the Tigers desperately need a district win. If they get caught looking ahead to their showdown with undefeated 7-0 Destrehan a week down the road - and lose to the Patriots - their playoff hopes dim. My prediction? I expect Hahnville to bounce back - and jump right back into the district race.

October 12, 2006 at 10:49 am
The Hahnville Tigers, playing at their nearly undefeatable home field, fell hard in 5A district play to East St. John 45 - 25. It was a night that Hahnville players, coaches and fans knew would be a test for their young team going up against a highly-ranked East St. John offense.
|The ‘Assumption’ is: A Destrehan win
October 12, 2006 at 10:45 am
Although the Destrehan Wildcats won their first district game on Friday and improved to 6-0 on the season, they lost a crucial piece of their offense on the first play of the game. After throwing an incomplete pass, quarterback Jordan Jefferson collided with an Ehret defender and broke his wrist. He then left the game and had surgery later on in the night. Head Coach Steve Robicheaux said that there is a possibility that Jefferson could return late in the season, but he is out for the foreseeable future.

They are playing football this year and are having a rough go of it. It will not get any easier tomorrow night.

Who would have thought of it, the New Orleans Saints have won two consecutive road games to start the season for the first time in franchise history. Yes, I know that there are the eternal optimists who feel as though the Saints will win the first two games of every season, but this season was different.

September 20, 2006 at 1:19 pm
From the outset of the game it was apparent that O. Perry Walker possessed the ability to make the big plays and the quick scores. The Chargers stunned the home crowd, taking just 1:22 to march 57-yards in three plays to become the first regular season team to score against the Tigers this year. Chargers quarterback Larry Young found receiver Tyler Stradford on the first play of the game for a 47-yard pass play. Two plays later Young again went up top, this time to Ronnie Carter for an 11-yard touchdown pass. After Hahnville blocked the extra point the Chargers were up 6-0.
