With a chance to claim an outright district title, Rosepine did not let the opportunity slip in the last game of the season.

The Eagles' front seven dominated against a run game that has given teams fits all season, as they defeated East Beauregard 46-8 at East Beauregard High School Friday night.

"We threw a couple of kids in there, defensively, that usually don't get much playing time," Rosepine head coach Brad Ducote said. "We told them that they are going to have to sell out and give their bodies up to slow that train of East Beauregard down. They did and did what they were coached to do. The results were great."

Not only did it give Rosepine the title but also marked the first undefeated season in the school's history.

"It feels great," Ducote said. "I'm so happy for our kids, my seniors and the community, in general. It was a big load lifted off my shoulders, because I was worried about East Beauregard. They are well coached and do a lot of things well."

East Beauregard (7-3, 3-2) finishes second in the district with the loss, and head coach Gordy Glaser will have his guys back at work to get ready for the playoffs.

"I thought Rosepine did a great, great job," he said. "They took it to us. Congratulations to them. There is a reason they were 9-0 and now 10-0. I sure don't want to take anything away from them because they did a fantastic job. We get to start season two. I'm proud of our kids and the accomplishments they've had this season.

"There's going to be 32 teams starting a new season, and one loss and you're done. We don't want to fall victim to that. We want to come out practice hard, and this gives us a chance to self-examine ourselves and see where we are at as a football team."

Rosepine quarterback Seth Ducote threw an interception on the first possession, but the Eagles quickly got the ball back and went up 8-0 on a Seth Shirley 12-yard touchdown.

"I told them all week long that we have to get score, get a stop and go up two scores," Ducote said. "If we can keep two scores up on them, we'll be fine. I didn't know if we would be able to do it, but we did. They're not built to score quick. We kept the ball away from them, like they do to other teams. It all worked out great."

Shirley added another touchdown in the first quarter to make it 16-0, and in the second quarter, Ducote took over with his legs, running it two touchdowns – 4 yards and 1 yard – to put Rosepine up 32-0.

East Beauregard running back Konner Seal got the Trojans on the board with a 7-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to get them on the board.

Seal ran for 81 yards on 18 carries, and running back Devin Perkins ran 13 times for 32 yards.

"We knew they were coming at us, and they came at us," Glaser said. "There was not a whole lot of secrets in the game. The bottom line is that they won the game in the trenches, and they did a fantastic job, offensively and defensively. They did something that teams had not done to us. The whipped us with seven guys in the box. No team has done that this year. It's a credit to them.

"Konner and Devin ran the ball hard last night, but we didn't give them a lot to run through. They controlled the line of scrimmage and our gaps. But they ran the ball hard."

After a scoreless third quarter, Rosepine capped off the game with a rushing touchdown by Hunter Herriman and a 33-yard score from Braden Nolen to seal the win.

Shirley had a game-high 230 yards on 32 carries, while Ducote rushed 10 times for 50 yards and was 4-for-6 through the air for 39 yards.

Each team will learn its playoff fate at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

"My goal is to go as far as possible," Ducote said. "Us having a chance to have up to three homes games is big. It's a big opportunity for Rosepine High School football. An opportunity we've never had, and we need to take advantage of that situation. I'm going to stress that to kids all week."
