Carencro & Scott Mayors Make Friendly Bet Ahead of Big Carencro-Acadiana High School Football Playoff Game
There are a lot of great high school football playoff match-ups this Friday night across the Acadiana area, but none more anticipated than the big Carencro Golden Bears/Acadiana Wreckin' Rams rematch.
And to get everyone even more excited for the second-round playoff contest, the two mayors of each respective town have placed a friendly wager with each other.
Carencro Mayor Charlotte Stemmans Clavier and Scott Mayor Jan-Scott Richard have agreed that the loser of the playoff game will don an apron and showcase their culinary skills by cooking a meal for the winning team before the next playoff game.
Ohhh, that's a good one!
So you can bet that each Mayor will be pulling extra hard for their team to pull off a win in Scott on Friday evening.
Mayor Clavier has no doubt that her Carencro Golden Bears will be victorious:
I have full faith in our talented team, and I am excited to showcase their prowess on the field but also see Mayor Richard's culinary skills when he cooks a great meal for our Golden Bears!
And the response from Mayor Richard was short and to the point:
Our Rams are ready for round two with the Bears and I can't wait for our players to enjoy some of Mayor Clavier's famous cooking!
The two top teams in 5A District 3 met in Week 9 of the regular season on October 27th and the game lived up to the hype as Acadiana narrowly defeated Carencro 27-26.
Both teams finished the regular season 8-2 overall, but Acadiana claimed the District crown.
The Wreckin' Rams earned the #8 seed in the Select Division I Playoffs and the Golden Bears got the #9 seed. Acadiana received a first-round bye while Carencro hosted Pineville. They handily defeated the Rebels by a final of 57-7 at home last Friday.
Friday's big game will be played at Bill Dotson Stadium on the campus of Acadiana High. Kick-off is set for 7:00 pm this Friday night.
The winner moves on to the quarterfinals the following week and will play the winner of #1 Holy Cross and #16 Jesuit.
