Two teams at home, two on the road this week
Week four of the high school football season (week six in the MAIS) could prove to be one of the most entertaining weeks of the season.
The Lakeside Warriors have a real good chance of improving to 3-1 on the young season, and the North Webster Knights will be looking to win their second game in a row this Friday night. Also, the Glenbrook Apaches, who got back in the win column last week, will take on an old rival this week.
But the most anticipated game of the week will be the Minden Crimson Tide vs. Parkway Panthers game in Bossier.
Both teams have marquee players and winning records, but the main reason fans are looking forward to the game is that former Crimson Tide head coach David Feaster is now the head man at Parkway.
Here's a brief look at those games.
The Crimson Tide are 2-1 this season and are coming off a disappointing 34-7 loss to Haughton last week. They don't have a lot of time to catch their breath, as they head to Bossier to take on the 3-0 Parkway Panthers.
Parkway beat Lakeside 54-12 last week, and are averaging 46 points per game. Head coach David Feaster figures to have a few things up his sleeve for his former school.
The Tide defense will look to control Panther quarterback Kolby Copeland. The Tide defense has given up an average of 290 yards in each game, and this week will be their toughest test.
The Glenbrook Apaches enjoyed their Homecoming, as they totally dominated Union Christian, 68-0.
The Apaches scored on offense, defense and special teams as they improved to 2-3 on the season.
This week's game will prove to be much tougher, as the Apaches host the River Oaks Mustangs.
Glenbrook head coach Ryan Porter knows the Apaches will face a stern test this week.
"River Oaks is a very good team and they are probably the best coached team we'll face all year," he said. "They have got talent all over the field and we're going to have to play our best football of the year."
The Lakeside Warriors fell from the list of undefeated teams last week against Parkway, but will look to improve to 3-1 as they host the Montgomery Tigers.
Montgomery is 1-2 on the season and is coming off a 32-14 loss to Lakeview last Friday night. The Warriors defeated Lakeview, 28-0 in week two.
Lakeside should have one of their top play makers back this week, as wide receiver/defensive back Jerrell Tellis returns to the field. Tellis will join Chris Lewis as top targets of quarterback Cody Poe.
The North Webster Knights won their first game as a school last week, as they dominated Northwood-Lena, 47-16.
The Knights' Lyntravious Gipson and Matt O'Neal had a big nights as Gipson scored four touchdowns and O'Neal added the other two.
The Knights will travel to Bossier to take on the Bossier Bearkats as they try to get their second win.
Bossier is 2-1 this season and beat Bolton, 41-13 a week ago.
