Scotlandville and Zachary made sure the last regular season either would play this season live up to its hype.

The District 4-5A rivals’ Saturday showdown was Baton Rouge’s biggest show of the week with LSU on a bye.

And the Hornets survived the Broncos, 13-12, to claim their first victory in the series since 2016.

The matchup featured a pair of Division-I quarterback prospects — as has been somewhat of a theme in recent years — but also proved arguably the teams’ most defensive battle since a 13-7 final score in 2006.

Here were a few of the individual standouts:

For the Hornets’ victorious defensive efforts, much started up front with one of Louisiana’s best defensive-end tandems.  Cage was an underrated athlete on the defensive side as a junior, came back stronger and has been a handful for opposing offenses to block all season. Hobson took some time to get on the field following his offseason transfer from Catholic (Baton Rouge). But once eligible and active, his presence on the other side has lived up to high expectations.
