Bearcats on own field Friday
Ruston High will be back home Friday night and this time on their own field.
The Bearcats actually kicked off the home portion of their 2012 football schedule last weekend, but it was across town, on the FieldTurf of Joe Aillet Stadium against Monroe Neville High.
This week, RHS will return to L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium at James Field to meet up with Bastrop High starting at 7 p.m.
It will mark the Bearcats’ second straight game against one of the state’s top teams in Class 4A, as RHS was a 23-2 victim of defending Quad-A champion Neville in the season opener.
