The Chiefs went on the road Friday night to take on the Tigers of Breaux Bridge with the hopes of getting another win and working out any problems that have plagued the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, but it was not to be.

The offense was unable to score and the defense gave up 35 unanswered. Coach Moore has stressed they must protect the quarterback and block at the point of contact to give our running backs the opportunity to get up the field to help control the clock and keep the other offensive off the field. Likewise, on defense, he wants to get the entire defense to the ball to help make the tackle. With the players putting forth that type of effort it will cut down on the missed tackles and touchdowns by opposing teams.

The Chiefs passing game was led by #5 Richard Landry with 19 attempts and 10 completions, 0 interceptions and 104 passing yards.

Trey Solitaire led in rushing with 9 carries and 68 yards gained.

Josh Fortenberry had four carries and 32 rushing yards.

Receiving was led by Tony Preylo with four receptions and 69 yards gained while Richard Moody had three receptions for 18 yards and Nick Ficklin had two receptions for 23 yards.

The Chiefs are working on improving their play in preparation for their upcoming district opener against Alexandria Senior High Friday, Oct 6.
