Glenbrook completed its 2022 regular season unbeaten as the Apaches took over early to defeat River Oaks 46-14 at Apaaches Stadium.
The Apaches (10-0) become one of only five unbeaten teams in Louisiana heading into the playoffs with unblemished records, joining Destrehan (10-0), De La Salle (9-0), Many (9-0) and Vermilion Catholic (10-0).
A long scoring scamper by DJ Carter put Glenbrook on top early while Turner McClelland and Rhett Johnson both hauled in scoring passes from Ty Feaster to help push the Apaches to their 16th straight win dating back to last season.
GeauxPreps.com’s Power Ratings have Glenbrook ranked at No. 6, which would give the Apaches a first-round bye.

NORTH WEBSTER 48, LAFAYETTE RENAISSANCE CHARTER ACADEMY 12
The Knights ended their season in winning fashion as North Webster started strong and never looked back in a win over the winless Tigers, a team playing its first year of football as a probationary member of the LHSAA.
North Webster struck first early on as Collin McKenzie hit Jkobe Lawson on a 20-yard scoring strike before a LRCA turnover set them right back up in scoring position at the Tigers’ eight-yard line.
McKenzie’s first of four scores on a quarterback keeper pushed the Knights’ advantage to 13-0, and North Webster never looked back, building a 41-6 lead by halftime.
Cooper Sanders added scoring runs of 35 and 50 yards for the Knights (2-8) while also picking off a pass on the defensive side of the ball.
