Destrehan showed why they are regarded as one of the better programs in the state after an impressive 49-20 win over a undefeated Terrebonne team.
The Wildcats came into the game trying to secure the school’s 21st district championship in the history, but head coach Stephen Robicheaux made it clear that a 5A state championship is really what his team is out to get. Destrehan 5 star running back John Emery put his imprint on the game finishing with 179 all purpose yards & 3 touchdowns. Destrehan quarterback Harold Blood was probably more impressive than Emery finishing the game 15-16 for 239 passing yards & 5 total touchdowns. The Wildcats only punted once the whole game, which came with less than two minutes left to go in the game. Destrehan goes into the playoffs as the #2 seed & will host Hammond in the 1st round of the playoffs.
Terrebonne was handed their first loss on the season, but senior running back Chaz Ward was the lone bright spot finishing the game with 153 yards rushing, 2 rushing touchdowns, & 1 receiving touchdown. The Tigers go into the playoffs as the #7 seed & will host Chalmette in the 1st round of the playoffs. If Terrebonne & Destrehan both win the first two rounds, both will meet up again in the quarterfinals.
