DHS, St. Amant end with scoreless tie
St. Amant and Donaldsonville met in the fourth and final game of the annual Ascension jamboree Friday night in Gonzales.
In the 15-minute contest, neither team scored.
Donaldsonville suffered a key loss as standout senior Devon Breaux was sidelined due to an injury. Sophomore Leandre James stepped in for Breaux at quarterback.
The game opened with Donaldsonville's Quentin Riley breaking a long kickoff return past midfield.
After the promising start for the Tigers, Breaux went down with the injury on a third-down play. Donaldsonville was forced to punt at the 13:09 mark.
After a touchback, the Gators took over and began a drive. On fourth-and-1, Donaldsonville held and took over on downs.
Later in the game, Donaldsonville's Jaquel Grant snared an interception on a pass attempt over the middle. With 3:10 left, the Tigers threatened in St. Amant territory.
A mishandled shotgun snap set back the Tigers after they had mounted a drive into the red zone. The problem would arise again, but when it happened a second time, James improvised and gained back some of the ground.
St. Amant quarterback Tyler Guillory was able to connect on first down passes late in the game.
