By Danny Reneau

An alert caregiver’s quick actions possibly saved a life in a residence on Circle C on Oct. 3.

The home was totally engulfed in flames when the Silsbee Volunteer Fire Department arrived. SVFD called for assistance from Kountze, Evadale and Lumberton fire departments.

Rebels hold on for tough 14-8 win over stubborn West Hardin

By Dannie Oliveaux

EVADALE — The Evadale Rebels evened up their District 12-2A Division 2 record to 1-1 with a hard-fought win over the West Hardin Oilers on Oct. 5.

Both teams depended on their rushing attack to move the ball. Evadale, behind a 241-yard performance from Will Farr, finished with 244 yards, while the Oilers finished with 198.

Farr carried the ball 23 times and a touchdown.

But the Rebels biggest downfall was penalties. They were flagged 14 times for 84 yards, while WH had three penalties for 15.

Evadale took the opening kickoff and marched 55 yards to the Oiler 5-yard line as Farr carried the ball nine times for 50 yards. But on fourth down and goal, Klay Sylvester’s pass to Lane Vinson was incomplete with 6:04 left in the first quarter.
