BATON ROUGE – The Catholic Bears have played the toughest non-district schedule in the state this year.

And they’ve made it look easy.

In their latest test against a talented Warren Easton squad, Catholic took a 32-0 lead into the locker room and cruised to an easy 39-14 victory Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

The Bears were paced by three first half scores from senior Corey Singleton, who rushed for 157 yards on just six carries and added a successful two point conversation. He scored on touchdown plays of 48,74 and 33 yards.

Daniel Beale completed 11-of-17 passes for 168 yards for the Bears.

“Catholic played a good game,” said Easton head coach Jerry Phillips. “They executed and we didn’t and against a team like that, if you don’t execute, that’s how you end up.”

The Bears were not perfect, however. The offense fumbled the ball away on back-to-back plays, giving the Eagles the ball inside their 15-yard line twice. Yet, Catholic’s defense allowed zero points from the two exchanges.

“We tell them they’re built for it,” said Catholic head coach David Simoneaux. “We play team defense. There’s not one superstar on the squad.”

Easton scored twice later on after the game was no longer in doubt. Touchdown catches by Fred Robertson and Wallace Foster gave the Eagles some consolation on a night that belonged to Class 5A’s top-ranked team.

“I thought we were dominant in all fazes,” Simoneaux noted. “I’m proud of what our defense continues to do. We kept them scoreless with our first team.”

Catholic (4-0) will look to stay unbeaten next week in another stiff test Friday at LCA next week while Warren Easton (1-1) takes on unbeaten King Charter.
