Teurlings Catholic and St. Thomas More will square off in their annual rivalry game on Friday night. While Teurlings Catholic is looking to move back above the .500 mark, St. Thomas More aims to continue its strong start to the 2018 season.
The game will be broadcast live on Yurview Louisiana for customers of Cox Communications and will also stream live on Yurview.com.
Going for Bigger Things in 2018
St. Thomas More won the Division II state championship in 2016, but actually they recorded a better overall record last season at 11-2. It was the first time since 2011 that St. Thomas More won 11 games in a season.
But they fell, 28-14, in the Division II semifinals last season. That has St. Thomas More out to return to the state championship this season, and the 5-1 beginning to the season is certainly a good start.
At 7-5, Teurlings Catholic also made the playoffs last season, but after a 2-0 start, they are 1-3 in the last four games. However, Teurlings Catholic is feeling better after beating Rayne last week, 40-14.
St. Thomas More beat Teurlings Catholic last season, 24-21.
