The Crimson Tide faced one of the most physical teams in the state of Louisiana in Haynesville last Friday. The Tide fell 13-7 to the Golden Tornado, but came away with plenty of positives.
The Tide now prepare to face the Southwood Cowboys at Northwood High School’s Jerry Burton Memorial Stadium in a game that has been high on drama the past two seasons. Southwood defeated Minden 32-28 in 2013 and 14-13 last season.
The Lakeside Warriors and head coach Joey Pesses had a tough time in the Cedar Creek Jamboree against Homer and Cedar Creek, but head coach Joey Pesses believes the Warriors will be ready to roll against Ringgold High School in their season opener Friday night at Ringgold. The Redskins and Warriors will both try to utilize their ground game, with the key for both teams being control of the clock and limiting turnovers.
The North Webster Knights fell 42-27 against a wildly athletic Rayville squad in the Pineland Jamboree. The big positive out of that game was health, as the Knights go into their week one road game against Haynesville with everyone intact. The 17-time state champion Golden Tornado and the upstart Knights will battle it out on the ground in a game featuring a plethora of powerful runners such as Devin White of North Webster and Keandre Harris of Haynesville.
The Apaches suffered a devestating 20-18 loss in 2OT to the CHEF Patriots in their second game of 2015. Now, the boys in blue must regroup and take on a very athletic Greenville Christian team. Greenville defeated Claiborne Academy 40-0 in week one, but was crushed 55-12 in their second contest. The Saints are 1-1 on the season. Glenbrook will make the long drive to Greenville, Mississippi in search of their first win.
