Jesuit and St. Thomas More Game Will Be Streamed Live on WRBH Radio
Round 2 of the LHSAA 5A state football playoffs has the #6-seeded Jesuit Blue Jays traveling to Lafayette this Friday to take on the #3-seeded St. Thomas More Cougars.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Cougar Stadium on the school’s campus.
The Jays (9-2) are coming off a strong opening round win against St. Augustine, 42-14. It was the second week in a row that Jesuit beat the Purple Knights. In the last week of the regular season, the Jays topped St. Aug, 34-20. The Cougars (9-1) enter the contest well-rested after earning a first-round bye because of their #3 seed rank. Both teams sport sterling records as the Jays are 8-2 and the Cougars 9-1. The winner advances to the semifinals round on November 28 and will take on the victor of the Teulings Catholic – Archbishop Rummel game.
