Ascension Catholic football at home for first round of playoffs

STAFF REPORT @dvillechief

The Ascension Catholic football team (8-2, 4-1) nabbed the number 8 seed in the LHSAA Division IV playoffs and a home field advantage for the opening round. The Bulldogs controlled much of its fate this season, and their lone district loss was on the road at West St. John – the eventual district champion. However, the Bulldogs rebounded on the road at weakened East Iberville and won 53-0.

The Bulldogs will host no. 9 Madison Prep Friday night at the Floyd Boutte Memorial Stadium in Donaldsonville. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.
