NEW ORLEANS -- For the second time this season, Notre Dame and Catholic New Iberia faced off....this time it was for all the marbles. Back in September, the Pios beat Catholic 37-0. But tonight was a turn of fortunes for both teams. Thanks in large part to a potent defense and running attack, Catholic New Iberia beat Notre Dame 33-16 to win its first state title since 1962.
LCA football has only been a force in division 4 for five years now. The reason? That's how old its program is! Thursday afternoon the Knights kicked off in their first ever state title game and beat Ascension Catholic 10-0 to win the school's first ever football state title.
