Edwin Hodnett said he was only interested in the score of the football game.
But prosecutors say the only score Hodnett cared about was the one he wanted to settle with Lyndell Powell.
Their confrontation led to Powell's murder last November...and to Hodnett's conviction today.

(( 23-year-old Edwin Rontae Hodnett maintained his innocence Wednesday as he told the jury he only fired once into the air during a fight outside the Gretna High School football game November 21st.
But prosecutors convinced a jury that Hodnett shot 29-year-old Lyndell Powell twice in the back as Powell was fighting with Hodnett's cousin, Jonathan Carter.
It took the jury an hour to convict Hodnett of first degree murder...his family then asked for leniency for a man they know as fun-loving and a good father.
