CARENCRO — With Teurlings Catholic and Carencro tied in the fourth quarter and Carencro backed up to a third-and-30, it appeared the Bears were looking to run the ball and gain just a few.
Instead, Tyriek Campbell broke a tackle and took it up field 71 yards to give Carencro a six-point lead over Teurlings.
Rebels quarterback Cole Kelley, an Arkansas commitment, finished 21-of-33 for 295 yards and a touchdown — but on the ensuing possession, Kelly was picked off in the end zone by Kevin George.
Kelley had two interceptions and Carencro rushed for 416 yards as the Bears upset the Rebels 33-21. With the win, Carencro (6-3) moved into a three-way tie for the District 4-4A championship with Teurlings and St. Thomas More.
Campbell finished with 28 carries for 237 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for 11 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Gabe Duffy added 162 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Teurlings, the No. 3 team in Class 4A, tumbled to 6-3 overall.
BROTHER MARTIN 42, SHAW 21: Despite a close game in the early going, Brother Martin pulled away for a three-touchdown win in a Catholic League tilt Friday night at Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans.
The Crusaders (7-2, 3-2) rebounded from last week’s loss to Rummel, even without workhorse running back Bruce Jordan-Swilling at full strength.
With Jordan-Swilling’s carries limited Friday because of an ankle injury, Lassair and fellow sophomore Matthew Alfonso spearheaded a rushing attack that amassed 186 yards. Lassair found the end zone three times.

De La Salle (9-0), the No. 2 team in Class 3A, looked solid in every phase of the game, scoring on offense and defense.
Quarterback Julien Gums tossed five touchdowns to four receivers. He finished 9-of-14 for 191 yards.
The Cavaliers never punted and played the majority of their reserves in the second half.
CECILIA 31, BREAUX BRIDGE 14: In Cecilia, the Bulldogs are one step closer to being crowned district champions.
With the school’s 1995 state championship trophy on site, Cecilia rolled past archrival Breaux Bridge in the annual contest referred to by St. Martin Parish residents as “The Civil War.”
Cecilia wraps up its regular season at St. Martinville next Friday, with the District 5-4A championship up for grabs.
Senior running back Raymond Calais had 245 yards on 28 carries and is now less than 100 yards from eclipsing the 2,000-yard mark on the season. Calais enters next week’s regular-season finale with 1,907 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns.
