The Eagles finish 9-1 on the season. Their only loss of the season came at the hands of the Delcambre Panthers. It was a 22-20 loss in week seven.
Central Catholic’s offense is a predominant running style offense. The Eagles scored 38 points per game over the season. Their high-scoring style hits opponents from different angles and will test the Basile defense, which has held opponents under 18 points per game this year.
Central Catholic’s high-scoring offensive unit is their bread and butter. Their defense is average and can be scored on. That was evident when Vermilion Catholic and Central Catholic collided in a league contest. The event netted nearly 100 points. CCMC won the game 54-42, but the defensive unit showed its vulnerability.
Basile has struggled this year in the big games. Their only losses of the year came to Oberlin and Elton. Both were games the Bearcats needed to win.
Tomorrow night will really be the biggest game of the year for the Cats. If they lose, the season is over. Basile, 8-2, is fully capable of pulling off the win over the Eagles. They battled the Tigers of Oberlin, the state’s top-ranked team, for three and a half quarters. It was a game that Basile could have won.
The winner of tomorrow night’s game will most likely meet the Logansport Tigers from north Louisiana. If Basile wins, Logansport will have to come to Evangeline Parish. That would surely be an advantage for Basile.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. tomorrow night in Morgan City.
