3. Vermilion Catholic vs. Lafayette Christian – Friday, 12:00 p.m.
District rivals Vermilion Catholic and Lafayette Christian meet for the second time this season. LCA has won consecutive titles and is seeking a third-straight. Head coach Errol Rogers said after the Knights’ 69-33 semifinal win that this year’s team was better than the past two, because they’re more team oriented than player. The Knights beat VC by 32-points in the regular season finale. Eagles’ coach Kim Guidry said she believed her girls were overwhelmed by the atmosphere inside LCA’s athletic complex and looked forward to a neutral site game.
