Wildcats trying to stay positive after three games

There is still plenty of football left to be played for the Abbeville Wildcats. That is the message Abbeville head coach Kevin Kern is telling his players after the third week.
The Wildcats, who stunned Church Point 7-6 in the parish jamboree, have not begun the 2019 season like Kern would have liked.
For starters, the Wildcats are 0-3. The most points they scored in a game was 14, and that was against the VC second and third-string players.
But what is killing the Wildcats on offense? Turnovers and penalties.

Vermilion Catholic in search of its first win over Kaplan

In the last two meetings between the Vermilion Catholic Eagles and the Kaplan Pirates, one team combined to score 62 points and the other team only scored 28.
With its wide-open offense, one would think it would be the Eagles who scored the 62 points and Kaplan who scored 28. Think again.
In 2015, Kaplan cruised to a 32-15 win over VC. The next year in a rainstorm, Kaplan won 30-13.
Tonight in Kaplan, the Eagles (2-1) look to get their first win over the Pirates (2-1). Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
