LeBlanc booted a 30-yard field goal to start off second quarter scoring for the Hahnville Tigers, which put them ahead of West Jefferson by a 17-0 tally.

However, West Jeff was not to be denied, and Mark Ford nailed Jarell Starks on a 10-yard pass for a touchdown in the second quarter, for a 17-7 total.

Hahnville’s Lee then popped a pass to Brian Singleton for 23 yards and a touchdwn, also in the second quarter.

The LeBlanc PAT was good, and Hahnville stretched their lead back out to 24-7.

In the second half, early in the third quarter, Ford hit Stacks again, this time for a 65-yard pass play for a touchdown. The PAT was good and West Jefferson was back in the ball game, trailing 24-14.

In the fourth quarter, Michael Phimas darted for 20 yards for West Jefferson to keep the game tight, and with the PAT good, the visitors trailed Hahnville by only 24-21.
