Glenbrook to play at home; all others on the road
With the 2011 high school football season winding down, three of the four Webster Parish teams are at or are hovering around .500, while only one team seems out of playoff contention.
Glenbrook sits at 4-4 this week, and Minden in one game above (4-3) .500, and Lakeside sits one game (3-4) below. The North Webster Knights are currently 1-5 on the season.
The teams fighting for playoff spots need to get hot over the final weeks of the season, beginning with this Friday night.
Here's a brief look at this week's games.
The Crimson Tide entertained the big Homecoming crowd with a 28-6 win over Woodlawn last week. This week the Tide will travel to Shreveport to take on the Huntington Raiders.
Huntington (2-5) is coming off a 44-6 loss to Fair Park last week. The Raiders two wins this season came against Green Oaks and Peabody Magnet.
The Raiders, as usual, are a talented bunch, but the Tide's offense would seem to be headed for a big game, as the Huntington defense has given up an average of 32 points per game.
The Glenbrook Apaches improved to 4-4 with a 32-12 win over Prairie View last week. The Apaches fell behind 12-0 in the game before scoring 32 straight points for the win.
This week Glenbrook will host Cenla Academy in a very important district match-up.
Cenla is 8-1 on the season and is coming off a 48-6 win over Amite School.
The Apaches will be celebrating Senior Night before the game.
The Lakeside Warriors dropped below .500 for the first time this season, as they lost to Jonesboro-Hodge on Friday night.
This week the Warriors will travel to Homer to take on the 3-4 Pelicans.
Homer is coming off a 51-26 win over Ferriday last Friday. Homer's 3-4 record is somewhat deceiving, as their four losses came to teams with a combined 20-8 record.
The Pelicans have scored more than 50 points in two games this season, but have also given up more than 50 points on two occasions this year.
The North Webster Knights lost a heart-breaker to Mansfield, as a NW runner was stopped on the one-yard line on the last play of the game as he attempted a two-point conversion in the Knights' 21-20 loss.
This week, North Webster will travel to Vivian to take on North Caddo.
North Caddo lost 57-0 to Evangel last week to drop to 5-2 on the year. The Rebels have averaged 33 ppg in their five wins, and outside of the Evangel game, their defense has surrendered only 56 points all year.
