Parkview Baptist and Baker High go to the Louisiana High School Athletic Association office for a sportsmanship hearing on Tuesday.
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will revolve around the events of the Oct. 14 football game the two schools played. That game was called by officials with 6:41 remaining in the third quarter because of an altercation. PBS led 22-0 and was awarded the win.
“We’re a go for tomorrow (Tuesday) morning,” LHSAA Assistant Executive Director Keith Alexander said. “Both schools have submitted their reports and video on the game. The officials have also submitted their reports.”
It is one of two sportsmanship hearings on tap for the LHSAA this week. A hearing for Bastrop and Carroll High will be held Thursday in Monroe at the Clarion Hotel, also starting at 9 a.m.
The Carroll-Bastrop game played Oct. 14 also was stopped in the third quarter because of an altercation. Bastrop was leading at the time of the fight and, like PBS, was awarded the win.
Duncan out for season
St. Michael the Archangel quarterback Dash Duncan will miss the remainder of the season because of an injury suffered in Friday’s 62-20 loss to Plaquemine.
Duncan, who entered the Plaquemine game with 1,335 passing yards and 18 touchdowns, suffered a broken collarbone in the first half. SMHS coach Eric Held said Duncan’s collarbone was broken in four places and will require surgery.
Junior Brandon Fields takes over as the starter. Fields has also played wide receiver during the season.
Last Friday’s 31-28 overtime loss to Central High at home marked only the fifth overtime format game for Denham Springs High dating to 1979, according to DSHS statistician Robert Graves.
The Yellow Jackets, who are 2-3 in overtime games, hadn’t played an overtime game since losing 38-37 to Baker in 1994. DSHS beat Central in another overtime game played at Central in 1993. That score was 20-17.
