Ducote rushed for 164 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries and threw for 116 yards, including a 64 yard score to Josh Cummings.

Who is your large school player of the week?

Barbe running backs Zene Chretien and Dylan Lewis also had big games, combining for four touchdowns and 302 yards in a 44-0 win over Riverside Academy.

Which area team had the most impressive win?

WA: Lake Charles College Prep came back from a 14-0 halftime deficit to beat Rayne and improve to 2-0. Edwin Gomez drilled a field goal in the final minute to give the Trail Blazers the win.
