Game of the Week: Teurlings Catholic vs. Breaux Bridge

BREAUX BRIDGE – (3-1) Teurlings Catholic Rebels going up against the undefeated (4-0) Tigers of Breaux Bridge. Last year, the Rebels shut down the Tigers 30-7.

It’s fall in Acadiana; but for Teurlings, it’s “Spring” time. You’ll read Rebels running back Larkin Spring often, while Breaux Bridge defenders will hear his name in their dreams tonight as he continuously refused to be tackled.

But Breaux Bridge has their own stud Dartravien Girod who takes the end around, who doesn’t NEED to break any tackles. He goes untouched fifty yards to help the Tigers tie the game in the firs quarter.

The Tigers weren’t done yet. QB Gavan Courville tosses it to the shift Jacob Landry, who makes a few men miss, putting the Tigers in a great position to score. Later in the drive, the Tigers, knocking at the Rebels’ door, would invite Senior RB Kavion Martin to the broken tackle party who made sure to RSVP in person.

Not to be outdone, Larkin Spring channels former St. Paul’s and McNeese full back, Dylan Long and runs through several defenders, putting the Rebels in the Redzone. Like I said, this dude hates being tackled.

The threat of Spring would then set up QB Sammy Leblanc, who fakes the hand-off to his trusty running back and takes it in himself to tie the game.

I cant say there wasn’t any defense, Courville tries to squeeze it in but the Rebels do what they do best and say “No!” RJ Tripp makes the diving interception after a tipped ball. The big guy should have been a receiver! The Tigers would give it right back though on the next drive.

However, a few drives later the rebels would find themselves in the Redzone. Naturally, you give the ball to Larkin Springs. After all, he likes being tackled about as much as News15’s Alex Worstell likes her 2:45 AM alarm.

It was a 24-21 rebels lead at halftime. But the Rebels would take care of business and win 41-35.

Next week the Rebels host the Carencro Bears while the Tigers go on the road to their biggest rival, the Cecilia Bulldogs.
