The St. James Wildcat football team advanced to the regional round of the Class 3A Playoffs after defeating the Marksville Tigers 39-0.

The No. 4 seeded Wildcats improved to 8-3 on the season and will travel to Baton Rouge to take on the Madison Prep Academy Chargers on Friday, November 17th.

The No. 20 seeded Chargers (5-6-1) defeated Caldwell Parish 28-8 in their first-round playoff game last week. The winner advances to the state Class 3A Quarterfinals.

Against No. 29 seeded Marksville, the Wildcats used a stingy defense that limited the Tiger offense to just 98-yards of total offense. The Tigers were only able to cross midfield three times the entire game.
