BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The football dynasty that is John Curtis came to Baton Rouge Thursday night to take on Parkview Baptist. The Patriots have produced 26 state championships and 39 straight seasons with double digit wins.
The Eagles started off by stopping Curtis on their first drive. They forced the Patriots to punt and blocked it. Peyton Phillips recovered and the Eagles started in great field position.
From there, Trent Kavanaugh ran around the right side for a touchdown to give Parkview Baptist a 7-0 lead.
John Curtis came storming back in the second quarter. Quarterback Brock Hebert ran into the endzone to tie the game up at 7. They scored 21 unanswered to lead 21-7 at halftime.
The Eagles came out of the break fast again. Reggie Hayes on the quarterback sneak fighting for a touchdown to get Parkview back within 7.
But that's the last time they'd find the endzone. Curtis scored the next three touchdowns, including one from Devon Benn who dodged a number of Eagles tacklers to the house.
John Curtis won the game 41-14 over Parkview Baptist who falls to 1-2 on the season. However head coach Jay Mayet said they still have a long season ahead to get better and achieve their long term goals.
"When you play a team like this, you want to play the best to see where you're weak," said Mayet. "We've got some things that we can look at, and we've got some areas that we know we need to improve on. So, you know, this is a positive for us. Obviously, the scoreboard doesn't say it, but again, we're in it for bigger things."
