Wildcats play Thursday night in Abbeville

Here we are in Week 7, and the Abbeville Wildcats are still trying to find themselves.
The Wildcats sport a 1-5 record and will be at home tonight against the 4-2 Crowley Gents.
Abbeville head coach Kevin Kern is waiting for his team to play up to their potential.
“We have been inconsistent,” said Kern. “One play we do this well and then next play we mess up. We commit a penalty or do something to hurt us. I have not seen us play four quarters of good football.”

Erath gets rare victory over Kaplan

ERATH - The Erath Bobcats were able to put an end to two streaks the Kaplan Pirates had over the boys from Erath.
With the 20-12 win over Kaplan on Friday, the Bobcats ended Kaplan's 20-game district winning streak that dates back to 2015.
The other streak to end was the dominance Kaplan had over Erath the last 12 years. The previous time Erath beat Kaplan was in 2007 under then-head coach Jacob Byler.
Erath senior quarterback Luke LeBlanc, who rushed for 124 yards and scored two touchdowns, was around six years old the last time Erath beat Kaplan in 2007.
