RAYNE – Kaplan’s Marc Constable caused Rayne fits all night Thursday in the second game of the Acadia/Vermilion Jamboree at Wolve Stadium.
The receiver-turned quarterbck score three touchdowns on the ground and passed for another in leading the Pirates to a 32-14 victory over the homestanding Wolves.
“He can throw and run,” said Kaplan coach Brent Indest of Constable, who rushed five times for 69 yards and completed five of his six pass attempts for 63 yards. “Whether on the ground or in the air, he’s our weapon that defenses have to worry about with the wing-T.”
Kaplan forced two early fumbles and scored on both to take a 12-0 advantage before Constable broke loose on a 34-yard touchdown run just before the half.
The Pirates added two more scored midway through the second half before Rayne finally hit pay dirt on a nine-yard scamper by Dylan Ware.
Rayne’s final touchdown occurred with just over two minutes remaining when Brody Bourque scored from 11 yards out.
Despite the difference on the scoreboard, the total offensive stats were almost even as Rayne turned in 192 yards, compared to Kaplan’s 195.
The Wolves were able to break the century mark as quarterback Tuler Venable was 10-for-19 on the night for 133 yards, limited to one interception.
On the receiving end for Rayne were Tre Leon (4-for-55 yards), Scott Curtis (2-for-15 yards), Aaron Chaisson 1-for-26), Andrew Abshire (1-for-20), Myles Pryor (1-for-10) and Zach Heinen (1-for-7).
Brody Bourque rushed for 41 yards.
