Tigers Suffer Heartbreaking Loss to West St John 24-23

Article Image Alt Text

The Logansport Tigers 2018 season came to an end this past Friday in heartbreaking fashion. The West St John Rams scored a touchdown with only 9 seconds left in the game to come from behind and defeat the hometown Tigers. Logansport had held the lead since the 3:57 mark in the second quarter. The game was played in front of an overflowing crowd at Tiger Stadium. Last time West St John traveled to Logansport, in 1993, for a semifinal game, the game was played in a rainstorm. There was no rain this time but an afternoon shower brought plenty of fog in at game time. With the loss the Tigers end their season with a 10-1 record. The current group of seniors finish their careers with a 45 and 7 record, 1 State championship, 1 semi final loss and appearing in the quarterfinals all 4 years.

North DeSoto’s Season Ends with Home Upset

Article Image Alt Text

By: Madison Ruston

Playoff time is here and the only thing on the minds of the North DeSoto Griffins was to find their way to the Dome one week at a time. They had a tough match with Helen Cox coming into town. They were prepared to fight until the very end.

Quarter 1

Helen Cox got the ball to start the game. They were able to make it into the red zone, but didn’t convert the fourth down and the Griffins took over. They were moving nicely with runs from Rykendrick Simpson and Aubrey Scott before a backwards pass was recovered by Helen Cox. The Cougars didn’t take advantage of the turnover and gave it back to North DeSoto. After a very long drive by the Griffins, they made it into the end zone with a run from Rykendrick Simpson. Passes caught by Aubrey Scott and Logan Leone helped out on this drive. Griffins took the lead 7-0 with :25 seconds left.

Mansfield High advances to 2nd Round

Article Image Alt Text

The Mansfield High School Wolverines survived a home scare, beating South Plaquemines High 16-14 in the first round of LHSAA playoffs.

South Plaquemines kicked off to Mansfield to begin the game, and a decent return had the Wolverines set up at the 30-yard line. However, the game was played between the 30-yard lines as the teams traded punts and battled for field position.

With seven minutes remaining in the first quarter, Adrian Green caught a 32-yard pass for a touchdown. Brandon Adams successfully ran in the two-point conversion, giving Mansfield an 8-0 lead. However, the Hurricanes did squeak into the end zone with a one-yard rushing plunge.

North DeSoto Wrestling Daddy Duels

Article Image Alt Text

SPORTS

The North DeSoto wrestling program will hold their 2nd Annual Daddy Duals on November 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm inside the North DeSoto High School gym. There will be four matches, a halftime, and then another set of four matches. The ninth match is being billed as the headliner, as Assistant Principal Russell Tabor will face off against Josh Sarpy. Sarpy’s entertaining callout and Tabor’s Facebook video response serve as great hype features, and the matches should be just as entertaining.

Last year, the students won the overall match against the dads. Assistant Principal Tabor states in his video that the dad’s were “taken by surprise” but he believes the newly recruited dads has given them “a pretty solid lineup top to bottom.”
