Breaux Bridge – Breaux Bridge grabbed an early 7-0 lead over Rayne last Friday and finished strong but still fell to the undefeated Wolves 28-21 in a non-district contest that was delayed more than an hour due to a thunderstorm.
The Tigers jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when Logan Bossier broke a 19-yard touchdown run and Bailey Thibodeaux kicked the first of his three extra points.
The Wolves managed to knot the score early in a hectic second period on a 10-yard run by Darien Harmon.
Breaux Bridge answered minutes later when Bossier tallied his second TD, this time on a 2-yard burst.
But Rayne’s Harmon helped to tie the game on a 4-yard run to pay dirt.
It looked like The Bridge would enjoy a 21-14 halftime lead when Kyrick Davis scored on a 37-yard pass from Julian Leon with less than a minute remaining. But the Wolves stormed back and tied the game again, this time on a 55-yard bomb from QB Donald Doucet to Johnny Deculit 29 seconds before the buzzer.
Defense dominated the second half but Rayne tallied what proved to be the game winning score late in the third period when Trent Winbush bulled in from two yards out.
Despite the loss, Breaux Bridge managed to finally get its running game cranked up as junior Logan Bossier rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.
Quarterback Julian Leon finished with seven completions for 124 yards and BB’s other TD while giving up one interception.
The Tigers face another tough opponent on the road this week when they renew an old rivalry with the Teurlings Catholic Rebels (2-1) in Lafayette.
