Destrehan looked to be hitting their stride again after a huge road win versus a very talented Thibodaux team. The Tigers were 6-1 & ranked number 4 in 5A coming into the game.
The story of the game for the Wildcats was the rushing attack from Razan Keller & Kyle Edwards *Alabama commit* rushing for over 200 yards & 7 touchdowns. But the Wildcats defense was just as impressive keeping a really good Thibodaux offense in check most of the night. They were able to get some key interceptions by Jaden Harding & Eric Jones at pivotal moments in the game.
The Tigers offense has scored 30 points or more five times this season. Destrehan head coach Stephen Robicheaux eluded to that they would have to win up front if they wanted to slow their talented offense down. “We knew the quarterback Alleman was a big time player & we wanted to get him off his spots tonight,” Robicheaux said. “He’s been on fire this season & that receiving core is tough to stop. I was proud of how we stepped up to the challenge & got it done tonight.”
Thibodaux falls to 6-2 overall & 2-2 in district. They’ll face H.L Bourgeois on Friday.
Destrehan improves to 5-3 & 2-2 in district. They’ll take on Central Lafourche on Friday.
