(COVINGTON, LA) — The Wolves are set to play the Hammond Tornadoes on a special Homecoming week battle in Hunter Stadium this Friday night.
The Wolves started off district play dominating 35-3 win over Northshore last Friday, Sept. 23. After that road victory, the Wolves advance to their second district game with 3-1 overall record. Both offensive and defensive squads looked outstanding against a struggling Northshore Panthers squad.
Quarterback Johntae’ McDowell threw for 107 yards, including a 41-yard TD pass to TJ Bedford. Even with the impressive win, McDowell threw for his lowest completion rating this season, along the least amount of passing yards for a game. Running back Corey Williamson had three rushing touchdowns on the night and ran a very impressive 150 yards against the Northshore defense. Senior receiver TJ Bedford had four catches for 94 yards against the Panther defense.
The Saint Paul’s defense only gave up 135 yards of total offense last week against the Panthers’ offense.
The Hammond Tornadoes enter this week’s game with a 1-3 record and a 49-13 loss to the Slidell Tigers last Friday in their district opener.
Even though the Tornadoes have struggled on both sides of the ball this season, their one win so far this season was against Holy Cross, a huge upset. Hammond will be looking for a second upset against the 3-1 Wolves on Friday night.
Last year, the Wolves dominated the Tornadoes with a 51-8 victory, and they will be looking for another blowout to cap off the 2016 Homecoming week.
