ZACHARY – No. 5 Zachary ends No. 12 West Monroe’s season in back-to-back years with a strong 4th quarter rally in the nonselect Division I playoff game Friday night. It was a defensive battle in the first half with the Rebels dominating the time of possession.
Zachary (9-2) held WMHS to just a field goal in the first half, until their offense found their rhythm in the 4th. The Broncos scored 20 unanswered points that started with a rushing touchdown by senior quarterback Eli Holstein, the Alabama commit. Then Holstein threw two touchdown passes to take the lead and never look back.
Under Head Coach David Brewerton the Broncos have beaten West Monroe (8-3) in the playoffs 4 out of the last 6 years.
Next up, Zachary will face Southside in the Quarterfinals.
