Apaches head to Pineville
The Glenbrook Apaches will head to Pineville today to take on the Cenla Christian Academy Lions in a district match-up.
The Apaches are 5-3 (2-3 in district) on the year after beating PVA, 60-28 last week.
Cenla comes into the game with a 6-3 overall record and 4-1 in district play.
"Cenla is a very athletic team," Glenbrook head coach Greg Tibbitt said. "They have a number of really good athletes, definitely the most athletic team we've faced all year."
The Lions have been averaging 33 points per game and have only given up an average of 20 points per game.
"They really score in multiple ways," Tibbitt said. "Last week against Amite ( a 62-30 Cenla victory) they scored six non-offensive touchdowns. They had two interception returns for touchdowns, two punt returns, a fumble and a kick-off return. We're going to have to be ready for everything."
Cenla running back La'Montrell Goudeau is the workhorse for the Lions. Last week against Amite, Goudeau ran for 118 yards and scored three touchdowns, two rushing (33 and 29-yards) and one on a 54-yard kick-off return.
"He's a really good running back," Tibbitt said. "He runs the ball really well inside and out. And they try to get the ball into his hands in a number of ways, including throwing it to him out of the backfield."
The Apaches' defense played well last week against PVA and will have to turn in another effort like that one tonight.
"I hope we don't get in another shoot-out," Tibbitt said. "I think we've been playing much better defense. We just need to get a few stops and maybe a turnover or two and then get our offense enough possessions to win the game."
The Apaches' offense has averaged a little over 45 points this season, so one or two defensive stops may just be enough.
Last week against PVA, quarterback Regan Edwards completed nine of 15 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns. Willie Thompson ran for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
Edwards spread his passes out to four different receivers. Jacob White had three catches for 108 yards and two scores, Jalen Patterson had three for 72 and a touchdown, Logan Clark added two for 63 and a score and Maurice Moore had a 65-yard touchdown catch.
