Central Lafourche boys enjoy big week

Central Lafourche boys enjoy big week

The Central Lafourche boys basketball team trailed by four points after the first quarter of Friday night’s game against Hahnville.

The rest of the game was all Trojans.

Central outscored Hahnville by 14 points in the second quarter to storm to a double-digit lead. In the second half, the team kept up its pace to roll to a 54-39 win.

The victory improves the Trojans to 17-4 on the season and 5-1 in district play.

“I didn’t think we played our best early,” Sanders said. “But in the end, we did what we needed to do to get a win. I’m proud of our guys for fighting past a good Hahnville club.”

Unfortunately Friday night’s game ended on a bit of a sour note. The Trojans led 43-29 after three quarters. That lead held for most of the fourth quarter when officials made the decision to end the game early because of overly physical play.

Lionel Batiste scored 17 points in the win to lead all scorers.

While Central Lafourche’s boys scored a big win, its girls couldn’t quite get on track.

The Lady Trojans lost 42-24 to Hahnville to fall to 2-18 and 0-8 in district play.

Central Lafourche has lost 15-straight games.
