BHS begins second round Friday against E.D. White
Don’t look for Brusly coach Harold Boudreaux to push the panic button after his team’s loss to Donaldsonville.
The season is still young, and the Panthers can rebound fast after the 56-50 loss Friday at Donaldsonville.
“Against a team like Donaldsonville, you have kids playing hard and you have to keep playing hard,” Boudreaux said. “The kids made a strong effort, but things didn’t bounce our way in a crutcial situation.”
The Panthers (16-7, 2-2 in 7-3A) fell to DHS despite a 31-point showing from DiMario Jackson.
BHS led 19-15 at the end of the first quarter, but the Panthers lost steam in the second quarter and trailed 28-27 at the half.
Donaldsonville led 38-35 at the end of the third quarter. The Panthers fell short 18-15 the final stanza.
“Any given night, anyone can win in this district,” Boudreaux said. “I think all coaches in this district want to win, but the game has to be played. It’s hard to predict what will happen. You have to come in with a good strategy because schemes could change at anytime.”
Three nights earlier, the Panthers coasted to a 67-30 rout over St. Charles. Brusly rolled to a 23-8 lead in the first quarter and led by 17 at the half. The Panthers outshot the Comets 19-5 in the fourth quarter.
