BATON ROUGE -- To take on one of the top teams in the country, let alone in the state is a tall task by itself.
But to also take on a team that has outscored their first two playoff opponents by an average of 78 points a game is another story.
This was the case as the Mamou Demons traveled to Baton Rouge to take on the Madison Prep Chargers.
In the end, Mamou was no match for the No. 1 seed, as they fell 113-34 in a Class 2A quarterfinal playoff game here Friday night.
The Demons started on the right track in the first quarter. Using a ton of emotion, Mamou held their own and only trailed 19-13 as the period came to an end.
However, the second quarter was a little different. Madison Prep decided to ramp up the volume and outscored the Demons 30-6. And, just like that, the Chargers held a 30-point advantage.
The second half pretty much mirrored the second quarter. Madison Prep continued to add to their lead, out pacing Mamou 32-10 and 32-4 in the final two quarters.
Mamou head coach John Jack praised his team on a great season.
“We had a tremendous year,” said Jack. “The guys played hard all year and represented Mamou with class.”
