PINEVILLE – Two of the titans of Class 5A Louisiana football met for scrimmage action Friday at Louisiana College as defending champion Acadiana met West Monroe.

West Monroe scored two touchdowns – one in the controlled scrimmage and another in a separate single-quarter portion of the scrimmage. The scores were the only points of the evening for either team.

Rebels sophomore quarterback Micah Bell found Sikes for a passing touchdown in the main scrimmage.

Both teams found plenty to work on I before the abbreviated 8-game regular season begins next week.

“You’re going to make mistakes – a lot of mistakes,” West Monroe coach Jerry Arledge said. “I think both teams benefited from it.”

Acadiana quarterback Jerimiah Brown broke loose on a couple of big runs but the Wreckin’ Rams were kept out of the end zone as the Rebels found ways to stiffen up on the plus side of the field.

While Acadiana returns seven on offense, West Monroe lost leading rusher Cayden Pierce and its entire 2019 offensive line.

“I was proud of our effort,” Rebels offensive coordinator Glenn Hunt said. “For most of those guys up front, it is their first varsity experience.
