LULING,LA- Putting a ruthless team on the field every Friday night is a nearly impossible task, but somehow Coach Nick Saltafromaggio finds a way to do it night in and night out.

Saltafromaggio’s Fighting Tigers have not lost a game since early September and refuse to experience defeat again. This fire has pushed them to a district championship, and does not seem to be going out anytime soon. The Hahnville fighting Tigers have punched their ticket to the 5A final four by defeating Denham Springs (42-21) , squeaking past Ruston (23-21),and rolling through Covington (38-27).

The last two games are key indicators of whats to come. Being playoff games Salt’s boys didn’t hold back against the nine seed Ruston Bearcats. This was anyone’s game from start to finish. The game featured some of the state’s top players with Anthony “Pooka” Williams(Hahnville),and Tahjmalik Samuel(Ruston) putting their talents on full display that night, but the game was really won in the kicking game. Thomas Rasco (Hahnville) ,and Brandyn Reaser (Ruston) both had rough nights missing two field goals/PAT’s respectively ,but when it came down to the wire Rasco’s leg was a key component to the Tigers success. Rasco sealed the deal with six minutes left in the fourth quarter. Reaser had a chance to seal the deal for the Bearcats with two field goals in the last two minutes of the game but could not pull it through.

The Tigers next challenge could have been labeled the “Battle of the Backs” when the undefeated two seed Covington Lions took a trip down to Boutte. The hype leading up to the game was massive, with the media, and fans eagerly awating to see the states’s two best running backs go head to head. Devin Brumfield #6 (Covington), and Anthony “Pooka” Williams #7 (Hahnville) did not disappoint with both keeping their foot on the gas from start to finish. The illusive Williams rushed for 300 plus yards for the third straight game while the brusier back Brumfield rushed for 267 yards. Some other standout performances included 3 touchdowns by Quarterback #4 Jhaquan Jackson, and an interception, blocked PAT by Safety #22 Hunter Leblanc.

The Tigers next matchup is against the three seeded Acadiana Rams. Can the Tigers continue to be ruthless and punch their tickets to the Championship, We will see Friday night 7:00 in Acadiana.
