Crowley's Bourque tops Grid Stars for second straight week
CROWLEY – Crowley High’s Davante Bourque seems to be hitting his stride.
The senior running back bounced back from a sub par performance in Week 1 with over 200 total yards of offense in a 29-16 victory over Washington Marion two weeks ago.
Last Friday, he was even more impressive.
The LSU commitment broke loose for 226 yards on just 17 carries and scored on a highlight reel 81-yard touchdown run during the Gents’ 34-6 Homecoming victory over Peabody .
That performance was more than enough to give Bourque the top billing on this week’s Grid Stars for the second straight week.
Bouque, who had 70 yards on eight carries at the half, broke off a 38-yard run in the second quarter that set up the Gents’ second touchdown of the game. His spectacular 81-yard touchdown run occurred in the third quarter when he reversed field, spun out of a tackle and outran the Peabody secondary.
Bourque added seven more yards on three catches.
CHS quarterback Andre Mills also had a respectable showing, completing five passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. He connected with Kaleb Cormier on a 39-yard scoring strike and later hit Danny Malbrough for a 13-yard touchdown.
Also earning recognition this week were Rayne’s Trent Duhon and Jalen Williams, Notre Dame’s Luke Broussard and Connor Goss, Iota’s Thomas Murrell and Brandon Fantroy and Church Point’s Desmond Bellard.
Rayne’s duo of Duhon and Williams combined for 257 yards and three touchdowns in the Wolves’ 28-12 Homecoming victory over Ville Platte.
Duhon racked up 150 yards on 13 carries and scored on a four-yard run in the second quarter. Williams went for 107 yards on 17 carries, scoring on a 13-yard run in the first quarter and a 36-yard burst in the third.
Murrell led Iota’s ground attack with 107 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in the Bulldogs’ 30-28 loss to South Beauregard. Fantroy carried eight times for 29 yards, scoring twice, while also hauling in three passes for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Broussard was the featured back for Notre Dame last week, rushing for 137 yards on 25 carries in the Pios’ 9-6 overtime loss at St. Louis .
Goss paced the Pios defense, which limited the Saints to three field goals, with 20 tackles (11 solo).
Bellard was one of the few bright spots for Church Point in the Bears’ 29-13 loss to Catholic High of New Iberia. The speedy wideout caught three passes for 97 yards, including a 65-yard reception for a touchdown.
