(COVINGTON, La.) — The SPS Football Wolves hung on to defeat the Jesuit Blue Jays in an exciting clash on Friday night.
The Wolves withstood a late rally by their bitter Southshore rivals and won the contest, 19-17. After going down 19-3 in the fourth quarter, Jesuit came back to within three points with a few minutes left on the clock. The Blue Jays had the ball in Wolves territory with thirty seconds on the clock and a chance to score when senior defensive end Michael Crocket broke free and forced a fumble that effectively ended the game.
The victory raises the Wolves’ record to 2-0 (excluding the jamboree) for the season, heading into a matchup with a stout Destrehan squad that plays tomorrow on Friday, Sept. 20. Senior linebacker Brady Loisel said, “Grind all day, grind all night.” Senior middle linebacker Miles Biggs had a message for the Wolves’ future opponents: “Since this spring we have been slept on by every team in the state. All I have to say is that everyone is in for a rude awakening and it will be a reckoning!”
