Turnovers costly the most in playoffs

Haynesville is one of the most successful playoff high school football teams in the history of the LHSAA with 15 state championships in hand because it always took care of business on the field and didn't beat itself. This past weekend it ran into a very lethal Ouachita Christian and made too many mistakes, thus was eliminated prematurely from the playoffs.

On the other hand Haughton's extremely potent offense proved to be too much for Woodlawn of Baton Rouge in the second round playoff win 54-35. Dak Prescott set a school record in passing for 473 yards, the sixth most by a Caddo-Bossier quarterback. Only Phillip Deas, Josh Booty and Brock Berlin, all of Evangel, have thrown for more yards in a single game.

Parkway didn't take advantage of its chances in a hard fought 20-16 loss to Northside of Lafayette. Some mistakes cost them dearly in key situations.

West Monroe overcame 29 penalties and 241 yards in penalties to hold off Barbe of Lake Charles.

St. Augustine scored with 19 seconds left in the game to get past Ouachita 27-21.
