LAPLACE – Despite a winless record in each of its two previous seasons, St. James entered this season with a goal to return to the postseason in coach Dwain Jenkins’ first season with the team. 
It doesn’t seem unrealistic these days. Two weeks after notching their first win in the last two-plus seasons, the Wildcats (2-5, 2-2) notched their second blowout victory in three weeks with a 35-0 win over South Plaquemines (2-5, 2-2).
“We got off to a nice start, stopping them on their first two possessions and getting a couple of touchdowns in the first,” said Jenkins. “We kept them behind the chains and made them really work to move the ball, and we took advantage of some mistakes on their part.”
Lowell Narcisse put together a career night, the freshman quarterback accounting for five touchdowns, while favorite target D’Kwan Sandolph scored two on the night.
“He’s starting to get a little healthier now,” said Jenkins.” He ran with some purpose on his last touchdown. We turned it over a couple of times in the redzone in the second half, and we set out to punch one in after that without necessarily resorting to the air to do it. He scored on a 26-yard run and set a tone for us.”
Narcisse’s 34-yard touchdown pass to Rashaan Dennis early in the first quarter put St. James ahead for good.
The Wildcats’ second score of the night came late in the first quarter on a Narcisse-Sandolph 43-yard connection.
St. James blocked a punt late in the first half, setting up a 3-yard Sandolph touchdown run to make it 21-0.
Narcisse rushed for scores of 5 and 26 yards in the second half.
Jenkins said that one of the Wildcats’ goals was to post a winning record at home this season. St. James is 2-1 after Friday’s win, with home games left against Carver and Cohen.
