Barbe loses state championship in heart breaker

New Orleans (KPLC) -

The Barbe Bucs lost the state championship in a heart breaker on Saturday.

The Bucs were outscored 35-14 in the 5A state championship in New Orleans.

Archbishop Rummel scored early and maintained a lead for most of the game.

Three rushing touchdowns by Keith Fulton helped clinch the game for the Rummel Raiders.

It's the Raiders (14-0) first state championship in football and first state title in the state's highest classification for a New Orleans-area team since Destrehan's back-to-back victories in 2007 and 2008, according to the Associated Press.

Trailing 14-13 late in the third quarter, Fulton scored from the 3, finishing an impressive 80-yard, nine-play drive. The 2-point conversion gave the Raiders a 21-14 lead they would not relinquish.

Fulton added a pair of 4-yard touchdown runs to put the game out of reach.

Looking to try and slow down a Barbe (13-2) offense that averaged 40-plus points a game, the Raiders scored a touchdown on their opening possession, driving 99 yards on 13 plays and eating 8:02 off the clock.

Check back this week for more scenes from the game on-air and online.

    In this week's edition of "Christian's Cajun Adventures," KPLC's Christian Piekos spent time on a commercial crabbing vessel. Christian was assisted by Roger Kelly, a veteran crabber.

    Kelly, who also goes by the nickname "Snoopy," has been catching crab since a very young age. It seems like rudimentary work, but Kelly couldn't be happier with his job.
