BATON ROUGE - Woodlawn put Catholic to the test, but it was the Bears who had the answer in the 2nd half, breaking open a 17-17 tie to go up 31-17, and then hanging on for a 38-30 win over the Panthers to clinch the district 5-5A championship. 

The Panthers trailed 17-10 at the half, but Charles Brooks gave the Panthers new life in the 3rd quarter with a 70 yard touchdown run to tie the game. 

The Bears bounced back immediately, as Derrius Guice scored on Catholic's next possession to boost the Bears back ahead 24-17. 

After a poor Panthers punt gave the Bears a second straight drive beginning in Panthers territory, the Bears extended their lead with a Clyde Edwards Helaire touchdown. 

Woodlawn clawed back, but the Bears win - coupled with a East Ascension loss - gave the Bears the district title.
