Acadiana came into the game 1-0 & fresh off of a Class 5A title last season. Curtis came into the game 1-0 as well & has been one of the most consistent programs in Louisiana for over twenty years.
The Rams were able to minimize the Patriots offense for much of the game forcing 3 turnovers along with holding their potent rushing attack to just 136 yards for the game. Two sport athlete Ian Montz was responsible for 2 interceptions, which one was on the final play in the end zone to win the game.
Acadiana’s ground game was a different story racking up 306 yards. Omiri Wiggins rushed for 113 yards & 2 touchdowns while his counterpart Keven Williams rushed for 101 yards & 1 touchdown. The Rams only passed for 2 yards the entire game.
John Curtis was in control majority of the first half out-gaining the Rams 167-119 & went into halftime up 13-7. The Patriots got touchdown runs from quarterback Buddy Taylor for six yards & running back Charles Quinn for seven yards.
The Rams front seven was terrific in the second half against Curtis’s midline option led by defensive end Cam George *UL-Lafayette commit*, defensive tackle Atravon Bossier, & Derreck Bercier.
Two touchdowns by running back Omiri Wiggins in the second half would be all the Rams need to go on & beat the Patriots 21-13.
