Parkview Baptist upsets U High, leads locals still alive in state semis, finals
Baton Rouge - Parkview Baptist didn't let recent history or another close game keep them from finally taking down their biggest rival, as the Eagles advanced to the Division II State title game with a 41-28 win over University High on Friday night.
The Cubs beat the Eagles for the state title last year and had reeled off 5 straight over the Eagles.
It was a back-and-forth game in the first half, with Cubs quarterback DJ White scoring as time expired to tie the game at 21 at the break.
The Eagles responded immediately in the 2nd half, taking the opening kickoff into Cubs territory, and later scoring on an 8 yard Reggie Hays run to retake the lead 28-21.
The Eagles will now meet St. Thomas More in the DII State title game after St. Thomas More took down Teurlings Catholic 28-21.
