  • WEST MONROE — Safety Rodaren Alexander and kicker Martell Fontenot personified Zachary High coach David Brewerton’s belief that his team could be a giant killer.
  • Fontenot kicked a 40-yard field goal with 1:36 left in the game. Alexander then batted down a potential game-tying 2-point conversion with 28 seconds remaining and covered the ensuing onside kick to clinch the Broncos’ 29-27 victory over top-seeded West Monroe in a Class 5A semifinal game Friday night at WMHS’ Don Shows Stadium.
  • “You either want to play in those situations or you shy away from them,” Brewerton said. “These guys wanted it. I never saw any doubt in their eyes. Never a doubt … and they fought for 48 minutes to get it.”

Zachary’s Blake Anderson consummate offensive lineman with a ‘little mean streak’

Congratulations Blake!

They are simply terms of endearment to an offensive lineman; music to their ears. Nasty and “having a mean streak” are high atop the list of superlatives that can be bestowed on offensive linemen, and Zachary senior Blake Anderson has been labeled that way by his coach. Blake Anderson When Anderson lines up at left guard Friday in fourth-seeded Zachary’s Class 5A nonselect state semifinal at top-seeded West Monroe (13-0) at 7 p.m., it will mark the 57th game of his career — the most in school history.

FOOTBALL | Zachary defense, QB Brown keep rolling, in 5A opening shutout over Mandeville

ZACHARY -- David Brewerton had a pretty enjoyable 44th birthday on Friday. No. 4 seeded Zachary gave its head coach a fine gift, locking up a 38-0 victory in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs against the 29th-seeded Mandeville Skippers.

  With the victory, the Broncos (9-2) advance to a quarterfinal matchup against John Ehret next week. The Patriots (9-2) blazed past Haughton 46-13 on Friday.
Mandeville (5-6) started off on a dubious note, as receiver-turned-quarterback Darren Steele botched a handoff that Zachary’s Ke’Shawn Sullivan recovered inside the Skippers’ 20-yard-line. As Sullivan returned to the sideline, the senior defensive end was given a gift of his own: a long silver chain, adorned with a large ‘Z,’ given to any defensive player that forces a turnover. Sullivan, as did other members of the Broncos’ vaunted defense, struggled to contain their excitement about the new turnover chain. “I’m a huge Miami fan and last weekend I sat at my house and watched them play,” Brewerton said. “They get a turnover, hand the player the chain and I look at my wife and say, ‘I love that.’ The next day we report for Sunday meetings with the LHSAA, and I get home to find that she’d been working on one for seven hours. My wife actually made the turnover chain. I showed it to the defense the next morning and they went absolutely crazy.” FOR FULL STORY WITH 4-5A LOCKERROOM

Broncos Beat Scotlandville 39-6

Fontenot gets his kicks to spark Broncos to a lopsided win over Hornets for the 4-5A crown

    • ZACHARY -- It would be hard not to give Friday’s game ball to Zachary’s Martell Fontenot.
Sure, there were other players who could justifiably deserve it – quarterback Keilon Brown ran for 101 yards on 13 carries, while Jon Burrell forced a fumble and intercepted a pass – but it was Fontenot alone who managed to keep the ball out of the hands of Scotlandville’s most talented playmaker, Kelvin Joseph. The senior kicker knocked in three field goals and four extra points in a 39-6 rout over the Hornets. But some of his biggest contribution came on kickoffs, where he kicked all but two balls into the end zone, limiting the Joseph’s chances with the ball in his hands.+4

Fontenot’s career game in the Broncos’ victory, which clinched the District 4-5A championship, was years in the making. “You’re always preparing for a game like this,” Fontenot said. “Throughout my career, I’ve been prepared for this moment. We focused on kickoffs and field goals in practice this week and it paid off.”
 

No. 8 Zachary extends its reign in 4-5A with a dominating 39-6 win over No. 4 Scotlandville

  • It came down to the last play of the game the past two times fourth-ranked Scotlandville High and No. 8 Zachary High played each other. This time it was not close, thanks to seven Scotlandville turnovers. Zachary raced out to a 22-0 halftime lead on its way to a 39-6 victory over the Hornets in a District 4-5A showdown Friday night at ZHS. The Broncos (7-2, 5-0) clinched at least a share of the 4-5A title, winning their three title in four years. A decisive first half played in the rain was pivotal.
    “When you have a rain game like this, special teams and defense were huge,” Zachary coach David Brewerton said. “And then when we got a chance to hit some big plays, we did. My deal is this with our defense — they play fast and run great angles. If we get off the field on third down, we feel comfortable when our offense gets in the groove. That’s what happened tonight.”

And so it goes on: District 4-5A rivals Scotlandville, Zachary look to add to their rivalry saga

  • BY ROBIN FAMBROUGH | RFAMBROUGH@THEADVOCATE.COM OCT 21, 2017 - 11:53 AM (0)
  • Scotlandville and Zachary high schools weren’t rivals in the truest sense until three years ago.
  • The teams met two times in 2014 and the Broncos won twice, including a victory in the Class 5A quarterfinals.
  • In 2016, the teams combined for 987 yards, but it was a fumble recovery in the end zone that gave Zachary a 49-46 win. From there, the Broncos went on to win the Class 5A LHSAA title. Scotlandville won 24-21 a year ago and was the Division I runner-up.
  • Now fifth-ranked Scotlandville (7-0, 4-0) travels to No. 9 Zachary (6-2, 4-0) for a District 4-5A game that highlights the Week 9 football schedule.

Zachary defense, special teams lead 21-0 shutout of Central

  • ZACHARY — Darweshi Sanders ran for 115 yards and three touchdowns Friday night, and the Zachary defense had seven sacks as the Broncos shut out Central 21-0.
  • Zachary (6-2, 3-1 District 4-5A) won the field-position battle for most of the game, and though the Broncos struggled at times against an inspired Central defense, they put together scoring drives in the second and fourth quarters and took advantage of a turnover to score another touchdown.
  • “We were inefficient on offense tonight,” Zachary coach David Brewerton said. “But we played well enough on special teams and defense to keep good field position and make it where (Central) had to go 80 yards most of the night. Our defense played well once they settled in.”
