Week 5: “Hang up on Grandma Good” Game of the Week: Acadiana vs. Southside

Lafayette, LA (KADN) — Southside High just finished its first 5A football game. Even though they lost, Coach Josh Fontenot believes his team now knows it belongs in 5A. This week they used the Barbe loss as a learning experience. Now the Sharks take on an Acadiana team Fontenot believes is the gold standard in 5A football. They need a solid defense to win.

“We’re still learning how to tackle,” Fontenot said. “We are still learning how to get off the field on third down situations so we have to tackle better and get off the field.”

Acadiana is still undefeated. It scored 70 points last week in a win over Sulphur. After long drives with the Rams veer offense it is vital to punch the ball into the endzone.

“We get in the redzone we want to get in the endzone,” Acadiana head coach Matt McCullough said. “We do a really good job of getting it in the endzone and not settling for field goals.”
