For the second week in a row, the North Vermilion Patriots have a big game on Friday.

Many parish teams on the bubble of making high school playoffs

This week is the final week of the high school regular season, and some teams are on the bubble of making the high school playoffs.
North Vermilion, Delcambre, Erath, and Abbeville have a chance to make the playoffs with a victory. If they lose, there is a good chance their season could be over.
Tonight’s football game between Abbeville (3-6) and Erath (3-6) is the biggest game of the year for both teams.
In the latest Class 3A unofficial power point rankings, Erath is the No. 31 seed, while Abbeville is the No. 39 seed.
North Vermilion is No. 30.
