BATON ROUGE – East Ascension (1-1) has one of the toughest non-district schedules in the state of Louisiana and it doesn’t get any easier in Week 3. EA Head Coach Darnell Lee and his Spartans welcome in No. 3 Destrehan (2-0) for their home opener Friday night.

East Ascension will face their third ranked opponent in three weeks, after a 16-10 overtime win at No. 8 West Monroe last Friday night. Now EA will look to build off that momentum and try to slowdown a strong rushing attack. Destrehan finished with 319 rushing yards and 5 takeaways in their dominating 42-6 win over John Ehret. The Wildcats scored 6 touchdowns, 3 of them came from the defense.
