LAPLACE — Defending state champion St. Charles Catholic will find a familiar opponent in Notre Dame during this week’s Division III semifinals.

Kick-off is at 7 p.m. in the Comets stadium, and tickets are available for purchase at www.stcharlescatholic.org/Page/595 or through the Hometown Fan app with a credit card. Tickets may also be purchased with cash at the front office until noon on Friday, December 2. Cash will not be accepted at the gate.

The Comets are coming off of a 40-21 win against Parkview Baptist in the quarterfinals. Semare Scott helped SCC reach the scoreboard very early in the first quarter on a 91-yard kickoff return. The Eagles had a two-yard touchdown run before SCC’s Davon Stirgus followed with another touchdown to end the first quarter 14-7 with the Comets on top.

Stirgus and Ayden Authement had touchdowns in the second quarter to lengthen the lead to 27-7 at halftime. The Eagles fought back with two touchdowns in the third, making the score 27-21. Stirgus made his third touchdown of the night with 13 seconds left in the third, but the two-point conversion that followed was no good. Late in the fourth quarter, Jackson Monica added a final 27-yard touchdown run to solidify the 40-21 win.
