The St. Paul’s Wolves are set to play the Fontainebleau Bulldogs in Hunter Stadium tonight, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. in their regular season finales.
Last week, the Wolves defeated district rivals Mandeville Skippers in an impressive 41-26 victory.
The Wolves were able to put up 34 offensive points without starting running back Corey Williamson, who is out for two to three weeks due to a partially torn meniscus acquired in the Slidell game two weeks ago. The Wolves turned to junior running back Logan Davenport last week against the Skippers, and Davenport delivered with three rushing touchdowns. Quarterback Johntae McDowell threw for 154 yards while completing 16 of 29 passes, but no touchdowns.
The Wolves defense started off slow against the Skippers, but dominated them in second half. The score after the first half was a 17-14 Wolves lead, and after those 14 first half points, the Skippers only found the endzone once more. Linebacker Taylor Lacoste had two interceptions against the Skippers, one for which he returned for a pick-six. Cornerback Jack Bonaldi also had an interception in the second half.
The Fontainebleau Bulldogs are entering this game with a 5-4 overall and a 2-4 district record. Last Friday, the Bulldogs lost in an extremely tight 36-35 game against Slidell.
The impact player for Fontainebleau this season has been running back Brandon Akkawi. Akkawi, a junior, has used his speed and agility to destroy defensive lines, and the Wolves will look to stop him before breaking free of the line.
The Wolves have already clinched a tie for the District 6-5A Championship, and with a win over the Bulldogs, the Wolves will solely win district for the second consecutive year.
