LHSAA makes ruling on Miller-McCoy, Landry-Walker brawl

Miller-McCoy will have to forfeit its game scheduled for Saturday against Helen Cox after a brawl that occurred Friday night during its game against Landry-Walker.

Two players from Landry-Walker will have to miss Friday’s game against Hahnville.

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association made the ruling Tuesday morning.

“By the officials records, all of Miller-McCoy’s  team came out of the team box and onto the field during the altercation,” said LHSAA assistant executive director Keith Alexander.  “By rule they are ejected for the next game. They would have just the 11 players who were on the field eligible and that would be a safety issue so they would have to forfeit.”

The incident occurred right before halftime.

The LHSAA ruled one Landry-Walker player ineligible for leaving the bench and another for fighting.

Alexander said his office watched video, met with officials, and got statements from both head coaches and athletic directors before making a decision.

Landry-Walker gets credited for a victory in the game that ended with the Charging Buccaneers leading 41-0.

The Charging Buccaneers (2-0), ranked No. 3 in The New Orleans Advocate Large School Super 10, will play No. 5 Hahnville (1-1)  Friday at Behrman Stadium.

Helen Cox gets a forfeit win for its game that was scheduled for Saturday.

Walker’s Wrap-Up (Rummel 39, East St. John 0)

Here is the link to the game story on Rummel’s convincing 39-0 victory over East St. John.

Stat of the Game:

43 – Number of rushing yards Rummel allowed

 

Game Ball goes to: This could go to the Briston Guidry (one sack for a safety, one blocked field goal and several tackles), but we’ll give it to the entire  Rummel defense for playing lights out all night and keeping the Wildcats out of the endzone for a second straight year.

 

They said it: “I didn’t expect this outcome like this, to be honest,” said Rummel coach Jay Roth. “I knew offensively they were skilled and thought they may put some points on the board.

Up next:  Rummel at Hahnville; East St. John at Scotlandville
