Public schools begin regular football schedules


8-31_GBGlenbrook plays at home, all others hit the road for week one

The jamborees are over, the scrimmages are done and now the three LHSAA football teams in Webster Parish can start their 2011 regular seasons.

Minden High, Lakeside and North Webster High School will all join Glenbrook, which began two weeks ago, in playing games that matter.

All three public schools will be on the road this Friday night, while Glenbrook will play at home.

The Minden High Crimson Tide is coming off a rough outing at the Jam at the Joe jamboree in Ruston this past Saturday. But the Tide rebounded from a similar situation last season and ended up making the playoffs. This year's team has that potential as well.

The Tide will open the season on the road, as they head to Stonewall to take on the North DeSoto Griffins. The Tide defeated the Griffins 32-28 last season.

The Lakeside Warriors will also be on the road this week, as they head to Ringgold to take on the Redskins.

Head coach Terrence Quarles is looking for big things from his Warriors this season, as the team's depth has improved and the team is heading into it's fourth year under his leadership.

The North Webster High School Knights will play their first official game as a new school this Friday night as they head to Haynesville to take on the Golden Tornado.

Haynesville and Springhill were long-time rivals, so this game figures to be extra special to the Lumberjack holdovers on the North Webster squad.

Haynesville beat Springhill, 36-7 last year.

The Glenbrook Apaches will attempt to do two things this week as they host the Wilkinson County Christian Academy (WCCA) Rams—get win #2 and stay healthy.

The Apaches lost to Riverfield last week and also lost two starters to injuries. The Apaches hope to get some of their walking wounded back this week in time to beat the Rams.

All games are schedule to kick-off at 7 p.m.
