CHS Defeats Sam Houston 47-7 in First Ever School Match-Up

The 0-2 Bears traveled to the Lake Charles area for their game with the 1-1 Sam Houston Broncos last Friday, September 18 with a determined focus.  That focus, attention to detail and athleticism, proved to the difference in the Bears’ 47-7 victory over the Broncos.  The Broncos scored their only points on a fourth quarter touchdown after the game had been decided.
The win was the 298th, good enough for eighth all-time in Louisiana prep football history, for coach Dale Weiner.  The coach, in his 29th year at the helm of the black & orange, ranks fourth among active head coaches with his 298 wins. 

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK for the Bears:

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire provided several explosive plays and rushed for 226 yards and two touchdowns on just 14 carries.  Edwards-Helaire also had 72 yards on five receptions.  The junior averaged close to 16 yards per touch for an offense that rolled up 568 yards of total offense, one of the top five performances in school history.

Senior linebacker Denver Denison picked up three solo tackles and two assists to pace the Bear defense.  The second year starter forced a fumble, had 2.5 tackles for loss, and was in on one special teams tackle.  The starting defense shutout Sam Houston and an offense that had two legitimate big play threats in their backfield.

Special Teams:
Senior kicker/safety Daniel Guilbeau had a tremendous night for the Bears, booting two field goals, five extra points, and five touchbacks.  Guilbeau had a solo tackle on special teams, played flawless on punt return, and picked up three additional tackles from his safety position. 

The Bears will host 4A power St. Thomas More at Olympia Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Friday, September 25.  Tickets are available in the Bookstore for $7 in advance and $8 at the gate.
