A look at this week’s high school games

Another week, another grind for the Webster Parish football teams. A pair of wins and a pair of losses highlighted the week.

This week three of the four parish teams will play at home (Minden, Glenbrook and North Webster) while the Lakeside Warriors play their fourth straight road game.

The district schedule is right around the corner for the LHSAA schools, so they will look to finish out the non-district portion with a flurry.

Minden High

The Minden Crimson Tide dropped to 0-4 after falling to Parkway, 41-2.

The Tide offense continues to struggle, but an influx of young players added this week could help out the depth on the team.

This week the Tide will host the Ruston Bearcats, the last of three-straight 5A opponents for the Tide.

Ruston was expected to challenge for the 2-5A title this season, but has struggled out of the gate and sits at 1-3 as they come into the Pit.

The Bearcats lost to Byrd, 16-9, last week after beating Arcadia, 48-6, the week before.

The Crimson Tide has turned to the running game more in recent weeks, but may look to get the passing game back into gear before starting district play next week.


The Lakeside Warriors dropped to 2-2 after losing 64-26 to Montgomery last week.

This week the Warriors will look to get back in the black as they travel to Arcadia to take on the Arcadia High Hornets.

The Hornets are 0-4 this season, losing to La. New Tech (40-20), Red River (20-14), Ruston (48-6) and Mansfield (47-0).

Lakeside head coach Joey Pesses wants his team to take Arcadia seriously despite their 0-4 record.

"Every Friday night is a test," he said. 'We just have to play better as a team, and we have to play better technique. At the beginning of the year we made mistakes but we were able to overcome them. We need to get back to the way we were playing earlier in the year."

North Webster

The North Webster Knights evened their record at 2-2 with a 23-14 win over the Bossier Bearkats last week.

This week they look to get above .500 as they host the Homer Pelicans.

Homer comes in to the game sporting a 3-1 record, with wins over Farmerville (40-20), BTW (22-14) and St. Fredrick (35-21). The lone blemish on their record is a 40-32 loss to Haynesville.


The Glenbrook Apaches improved to 4-2 with an 82-69 win over River Oaks last Thursday night.

This week the Apaches will host the Tallulah Academy Trojans.

Tallulah is 2-4 on the year and has averaged 25 points per game on offense, while their defense has given up an average of 24.8.

After Thursday's win over River Oaks, the Apaches are averaging 42 points per game, so this game could feature a lot of scoring and big plays.
