GRR: Jesuit New Orleans
In an early clash of two of the stronger teams in Louisiana went the way of the Jesuit Blue Jays Saturday.
Jesuit New Orleans edged the NOLA Barbarians 14-10. Both teams went into the game 1-0 after wins over Captain Shreve last weekend.
Jesuit HS of New Orleans kicked off their Louisiana HS league season with a workmanlike 27-5 defeat of new team Captain Shreve Saturday in New Orleans.

Called the Deep South HS League last year, this competition has reverted to calling itself Louisiana Rugby, despite the fact that they have a team from Mississippi (the Mississippi Royals), and Florida (Niceville) in the competition.
The Jesuit-New Orleans Blue Jays have secured a place in the Deep South HS league semifinals thanks in part to this past Saturday's 31-14 win over Shreveport.
The Bayous Hurricanes continued their winning ways in the Deep South HS league, defeating a tough New Orleans Barbarians team 39-0 in Gretna, La. Saturday.
