BATON ROUGE – No. 3 Catholic High (3-1) put on a clinic against No. 3 St. Thomas More (3-1) Friday night at Memorial Stadium for our Football Friday Night Game of the Week.

The first half was an old school shootout trading touchdowns. The Cougars scored first on their opening drive when Sam Altmann connected with Landon Strother. STM goes up 7-0 8:08 in the first quarter.

After a fumble by the Cougars, Daniel Beale hits Shelton Sampson Jr in the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown giving CHS 14-7 lead with 3:43 left in the first quarter.

Both teams trade touchdowns until a big defensive stop by Catholic forces STM to kick a field goal right before half, but it’s short. Cougars take a 28-21 halftime lead.
