Three of four teams at home this week

The Webster Parish football teams went 0-3 last week, with Glenbrook having a bye.

This week all four teams will be in action with Glenbrook, North Webster and Lakeside playing at home, while the Minden Crimson Tide hits the road.

Minden High

The Minden Crimson Tide dropped to 0-6 overall and 0-1 in District 1-4A play with their loss to Fair Park last Thursday at Independence Stadium.

The Tide offense had their best outing of the year, as they totaled 331yards in total offense. But the Tide had trouble finishing drives. They were inside the red zone regularly against the Indians, but failed to come away with any points.

This week the Tide will head to Shreveport to take on the Woodlawn Knights. Woodlawn enters the game 1-5 and 1-0 in district.

The Knights won their first game of the year last week, beating the previously unbeaten Northwood Falcons, 15-12.

Woodlawn's 1-5 record could be deceiving, as the combined record of their opponents is 23-7.


After five straight road games, the Lakeside Warriors will finally return to Warrior Stadium to play a home game.

The Warriors fell to Sterlington last week, as they opened District 2-2A play. This week the Warriors will host the 2-4 Jonesboro-Hodge Tigers.

Lakeside head coach Joey Pesses is happy to avoid the road trip this week.

"We're all excited about playing at home again," Pesses said. "I actually had to wash and dry the home jersies because they had dust all over them."

The Lakeside Booster Club is selling blue t-shirts with their new logo, and Pesses is encouraging everyone to buy one and wear them to all the remaining home games.

"It would be great to have a sea of blue shirts in the stands this week," he said. "In fact, I'd like to see that in the stands for all of our remaining home games."


The Glenbrook Apaches took the week off last week, and will get back into action this Friday night as they celebrate their annual Homecoming.

The Apaches come into the game with a 4-3 record and will host the 3-5 Prairie View Academy Spartans. PVA's offense averages just 13 points per game, while their defense gives up an average of 32 ppg.

The Apaches offense will look to take advantage of the Spartans defense, but more importantly, the Apaches hope to see improvement from their defense that has given up 69 and 55 points in their last two games.

North Webster

The North Webster Knights fell back to .500 on the season, as they lost to Calvary Baptist last week.

This week the Knights will host the Mansfield Wolverines. Mansfield started the season 1-2, but has reeled off three straight wins.

They beat Arcadia, 47-0, Richwood, 32-28 and then beat North Caddo 41-27 last week.

The Knights (3-3) will look to spring quarterback J.O. Smith for running room and rely on their tough defense against the Wolverines high-scoring offense.
