Football regular season comes to a close

The week that every high school football fan dreads is here, this week is the final week in the 2012 regular season.

All four LHSAA schools will be playing their final regular season games this Friday night, with only North Webster heading to the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Glenbrook Apaches will begin the MAIS playoffs this week.

Minden High

Minden High (1-8 overall, 1-3 in district) used a big second half to beat Benton 30-25 last week for their first win of the season.

This week the Tide will attempt to end the season with a two-game winning streak as they head to Shreveport to take on the Northwood Falcons.

Northwood, under second-year head coach Jim Gatlin, comes into the game with a 7-2 record, with their losses coming to Bossier (35-27) and Woodlawn (15-12)

The Falcons beat Huntington, 47-16 last week.

The Tide's passing game and stingy defense led the way in last week's win, and will have to respond once again this week.


The Lakeside Warriors (3-6, 0-4) have lost their last four games as the injuries continue to mount.

Last week, the Warriors fell to Lake Providence, 40-14 and will close out their season with a home game against Ferriday.

Ferriday has had their own struggles this year, as they come into the game with a 1-8 record. Their only win came in week three when they beat Vidalia, 20-14.

The Warriors will look to Chris Lewis and Clayton Festavan to lead them to a season-ending win. Lewis scored one of the Warriors touchdowns against lake Providence, and Festavan threw a touchdown pass to Cameron Corley for the other score.


It was all or nothing for the Glenbrook Apaches last week against Claiborne Academy.

Win and they advance to the MAIS playoffs, lose and their season would be over.

The Apaches responded with a 32-12 win over the Rebels, and will now move on to play Newton Academy in Decatur, Mississippi this Friday night in a first round match-up.

Newton Academy is the first place team in District 4A and sports a 6-4 record.

North Webster

The North Webster Knights had a tough test last week, as they fought the Evangel Eagles to the very end before losing.

This week the Knights will head to Shreveport to take on Booker T. Washington.

The Lions (5-4) have won their last two games, 39-0 over North Caddo and 8-6 over Mansfield and will be looking to get a win to finish above .500.

The Knights also want to finish above .500 and will look to use this game to spring them into the LHSAA playoffs on a roll.
