LAFAYETTE - Breaux Bridge High garnered plenty of preseason and early-season buzz with a team that features three LSU commitments.
The Tigers were neutralized by the pass-and-catch combination of D’Shaie Landor and Dylan Bossier as Teurlings Catholic notched a 28-7 victory Friday.
Landor completed 13 of 23 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns to help power the Rebels. It was TCHS’ first win over Breaux Bridge (6-1, 1-1) since 2007 and marked only the fifth time in the 23-game series that the Rebels had garnered a win.
One of Breaux Bridge’s LSU commitments, Travin Dural, has been an attention-grabber and finished with five catches for 88 yards.
But the big-play receiving star for the night was Teurlings’ Bossier, who had five catches for 179 yards and two TDs.
TCHS (4-3, 1-1), which lost to top-ranked St. Thomas More the week before in District 5-4A play, compiled 382 yards of total offense.
Teurlings is now ranked No. 5 in the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s statewide high school football polls, up three spots.
Breaux Bridge dropped from No. 2 to No. 6.
Curtis closer to No. 500
John Curtis head coach J.T. Curtis moved a step closer to his 500th career victory when the Patriots notched a 41-0 win over District 9-2A rival Newman last week.
Curtis, who has won 23 state titles, enters Saturday’s 9-2A game with Cohen at 499-54-6.
The top-ranked Patriots (7-0, 4-0) held Newman to minus-8 yards rushing.
Curtis led 13-0 at halftime and broke the game open with three third-quarter TDs. Raekwon James led Curtis with 161 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
Returns key win
There was no question which player was the determining factor when second-ranked Winnfield ran away with a 48-6 over then No. 4-ranked Menard on Friday.
Alonzo Moore scored five TDs for Winnfield, including two special teams scores to start the game. Moore returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a TD and then took a punt back 64 yards for another score in the opening minutes of the District 3-2A game played in Winnfield.
Moore than went on to add 210 rushing yards on just 10 carries, including TD runs of 85, 69 and 42 yards for Winnfield (7-0, 2-0). Freddie Hallman led Alexandria-based Menard (6-1, 1-1) with 159 yards of total offense, which dropped to No. 8 this week.
Brawl shortens Bastrop win
Xavier Robinson ran for 156 yards on 22 carries as Bastrop notched a 48-22 win over Carroll in a game stopped because of a benches-clearing brawl in the third quarter.
Bastrop (3-4) raced out to a 20-0 lead in the game that was stopped with 1:19 left in the third quarter Friday night.
