Calvary Baptist near perfect in win against D’Arbonne Woods

JOURNAL STAFF 

Calvary Baptist continued to ride roughshod over District 1-2A as the visiting Cavaliers smacked D’Arbonne Woods Charter 56-7 on Friday. 

Running back James Simon rushed for three touchdowns on just four touches while quarterback Abraham Wardell tossed three scores on a near-perfect night in Farmerville.

Wardell completed 15-16 passes for 302 yards with receiver Chris Jackson (5-96 1 TD) as his favorite target. 

“In addition to the more than 500 yards of offense tonight, our defense played extremely well,” said Calvary coach Rodney Guin. 

CBA, No. 5 in the LSWA Class 2A poll, (6-2, 3-0 District 1-2A) won its fifth straight contest and topped the 40-point mark for the fifth straight game. 

D’Arbonne Woods Charter (5-3, 1-2 District 1-2A) had its own ideas of getting back into the district race, but they suffered their second straight loss after falling to Loyola this past week. 

Glenbrook 48, Plain Dealing 16: Glenbrook remained undefeated this season with its eighth straight victory Friday, cruising at outmanned but gritty Plain Dealing.  

The Apaches (8-0, 4-0 District 1-1A) entered the week at No. 3 in the LHSAA Power Rankings and will continue to take aim at the top seed in the playoffs. 

The 16 points scored is the third-most for the Lions (0-8, 0-4 District 1-1A) this season, but it was no match for the high-power Apaches offense. 

Glenbrook is on a crash course with Homer to determine district supremacy next week, while Plain Dealing searches for its first win at Beekman Charter. 

Haynesville 48, Magnolia School of Excellence 6: The Mariners entered Friday’s visit from Haynesville with confidence after logging their first win of the season against Plain Dealing and scoring 78 points in their last two games. 

But Haynesville put an exclamation point on the night quickly, building a 41-point lead in the third quarter with Magnolia not scoring until the late stages of the game. 

Class 1A No. 9 Haynesville (7-1, 3-1 District 1-1A) has won four straight while Magnolia (1-7, 1-3) hopes the strong district schedule and another win in its final two games is enough to make the Division IV Select playoffs. 

The Mariners entered the week at No. 25 with 24 teams making the postseason.
