After rolling up 337 yards of total offense, Eunice High had trouble putting the ball into the endzone as the Bobcats dropped a 15-9 decision to Lafayette High.
“With 19 first downs and almost 350 yards of offense, I would say 9-out-of-10 times a team should win those games,” Eunice High head coach Paul Trosclair said. “We found a way to lose it with turnovers and critical breakdowns at the wrong times.
“There are a lot of factors that go into losing, but we are finding a way to lose right now,” the coach said. “We are still working and trying to get better.
“Hopefully we can get on a run as we have done before,” Trosclair said. “We know what it is like to get a winning streak together.”
The Bobcats (1-2) entertain Westgate (2-1) at 7 p.m. Friday with the hopes of stopping the two-game losing streak.
Westgate defeated Shaw 18-14 in a stunning win last Friday.
“They have a great quarterback and they beat Shaw,” Trosclair said. “That speaks a whole lot about them. They are a team with a lot of talent.”
Diontae Spencer scored on a quarterback sneak with 1:26 left in the game to seal the upset over Shaw.
Spencer put up 248 yards of total offense, including 128 yards rushing.
Westgate also blocked two second-half punts and recovered a fumble to shut out the Eagles in the final two quarters.
The Tigers could have put the game away earlier but drives stopped on the Shaw 19, 1, 13 and 36 on four possession that netted zero points.
In loss to Lafayette, Martin Seemion led the Bobcat offense with 89 yards on 12 carries, while Trey Ceasar was close behind with 88 yards on 20 carries.
Ceasar scored on a 1-yard run and senior kicker Jeffery Burge drilled a 42-yard field goal to give the Bobcats a 9-7 lead at intermission.
But the Mighty Lions sealed the win in the fourth quarter as Ethan Russell scored his second touchdown of the game.
