Opening day recap
November 3rd, 2023| Written by: Staff writer



The New Orleans, Northshore and Baton Rouge areas started the season with duals and tri-meets on Wednesday.  Some matches were absolute blowouts while a few others had the appearance of future results, albeit they really did not as this was on November 1st and the big tournaments are two to three months away.

East Ascension 48-Catholic 32

East Ascension and Catholic started their seasons against each other for the third year in a row.  The Spartans started strong with three successive falls followed by receiving the only forfeits of the evening to take a 30-0 lead.  Then the Bears came back with a vengeance, with four falls and two major decisions to take a 32-30 lead.  But the last matches were all Spartans fall, giving them a16 point win which was four points more than they received via forfeits.

De la Salle 48-Belle Chasse 24

Only seven matches were held and the Cavaliers won six via falls.  Evan Shepherd recorded the win by fall for the Cardinals.

Brother Martin 84-Riverdale 0

Brother Martin 76-Pearl River 6

The Crusaders seemed out for blood putting what looked to be mostly first-string kids against their Division II opponents.  Pearl River's Evan Montel scored a fall and was the sole winner over a Crusader opponent.

Riverdale 48-Pearl River 24

The Scottish Rebels doubled up the Colonels winning six matches via falls to only three for Pearl River in the nine matches contested.

St. Paul 84-Mandeville 0

The Wolves scored 14 falls, 11 in the first period, to dominate the Skippers.

Central 33-Zachary 24

Only five matches were contested.  Three Wildcats won by falls.  Gavin Landry had a much harder time with Van Vo in scoring a 3-1 win.  Andrew Shelton won via a fall for the Broncos.

Walker 60-Covington 24

The Lions have to feel pretty good about this match.  Sure, they lost 60-24, but their 24 points came from scoring four falls.  All of Walker's points came via forfeits.

Lakeshore 28-Covington 17

Only six matches were contested and each team won three of them.  The Lions, though, had to forfeit five matches to the Titans.

Walker 42-Lakeshore 42

The tie score is deceiving.  Eleven matches were held but the Titans won seven of them.
