Westlake Defeats Sulphur In Friday's Jamboree

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Friday night lights.  It's been awhile since we've heard that.  One week from tonight high school football stadiums across the state will be lit up.  As the regular season kicked off with the jamborees continued tonight at Cowboy Stadium with Westlake and Sulphur beginning the night's games.

The Westlake first year head coach Shawn Demerrit and his Rams tried to get it going against the Sulphur Tors.

In the first half the Tors' QB Kale Breaux let it fly over the middle to senior running back Brian Walker took it to the house for the score.  Sulphur trailed Westlake 12-7 at the end of the first half.

Jumping to the second half had the Rams on top and then came Handon Etienne off the punt return.  Don't be fooled by his size, this guy can fly.  With no one stopping him, he ran it in for a touchdown, putting the Rams ahead 20-7.

A little later on, the Ram defense forced Sulphur's Walker to fumble the ball, giving the ball to Westlake.  Later on that drive, Rams QB Tyler Johnson connected with Etienne once again for his third touchdown of the night.

The Westlake Rams dominated on both sides of the ball as they defeated Sulphur in the jamboree 27-16.

    The Saharan dust is still around and is expected to be in a "unhealthy for sensitive groups" today. If you have breathing problems, or asthma, make sure to use caution if you spend any time outdoors. There will also be very warm temperatures, reaching the mid 90s. There will not be any rain to cool these temperatures down. It will likely feel like the triple digits, getting as high as 107 degrees. It will take time for the temperatures to cool down with no rain.
