The high school football season continues Friday, as local teams compete in five combined games.
Four teams are playing in the parish and three schools have home games.
One contest has a pair of local teams playing as Bogalusa hosts Pine.
Every game is Friday.
Bogalusa at Pine
Bogalusa is at home this week, playing Pine in an intra-parish contest.
This is the first regular season meeting between the two teams since 2014. Bogalusa won that game, 39-14. Pine and Bogalusa met in the Washington Parish Jamboree last year and Pine won that game, 24-6.
Bogalusa opened the season last week with a 26-13 victory over Istrouma.
“I think our kids and coaches are excited to play this week,” Bogalusa coach Adam Brumfield said. “It’s always fun to play a team in your parish because bragging rights are always on the line. (Pine) Coach (Bradley) Seal and his staff do a great job and I know he’ll have his team prepared, so we’re really looking forward to the game.”
Brumfield credited many aspects of his team on the victory.
“I thought our offensive line played really well Friday night,” Brumfield said. “We were able to run the ball successfully and our special teams were vastly improved since we played at the jamboree and that helped. Raheem Roberts made a pick-six in the fourth quarter, which sealed the game for us.”
Last week, Josh Taylor threw for 112 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-9 passing. Taylor also ran 14 times for 67 yards.
Talik Williams had 60 yards on the ground and a touchdown. He also caught a pass for 14 yards. Williams also had three solo tackles, two assists, one for a loss and he recovered a fumble.
Tajdryn Forbes recorded two catches for 48 yards and a touchdown.
Tyrese Roussell caught two passes for 35 yards. Defensively, he tallied five solo stops to go with two assists and a tackle for a loss.
Raheem Roberts made a pair of receptions for 20 yards. Roberts also had an interception return for a score that sealed the game.
Shadwick Gamble made six tackles, two assists with a sack and a stop for a loss.
The defensive unit allowed 215 yards from scrimmage — 116 rushing, 99 passing.
Pine enters the week 0-1 after a 41-20 loss to Jewel Sumner.
“We’ve got to move fast from last week and fix our mistakes,” Seal said. “It’s a big game. It’s against a parish team and you want to play hard against your in-parish teams.”
Adrianuen Johnson rushed for 99 yards on 13 carries and three touchdowns for Pine.
“This whole year, he’s run the ball really well. He’s a big back and a skilled runner. He knows how to run the football,” Seal said.
Seal felt his defense stopped the run well last week.
“We just got beat with three big pass plays,” Seal said.
Fontainebleau at Franklinton
