Games This Week
LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE over SPLENDORA—The Battlin’
Bears played well last week against cross-county rival Bridge City but will have to take it
up several notches for their trip to Splendora Friday night.
HUFFMAN over BRIDGE CITY—The Cardinals will be up against the district
leader and will have their work cut out on this road trip.
ORANGEFIELD over HARDIN—This will be an important game for the
Bobcats to see if they can rebound from a hard-fought loss. I think they will bounce right
back into the winning column and pick up where they left off.
BARBERS HILL over VIDOR—The Pirates will be facing one of the best Class
5A teams in the Houston area. It would be a gigantic feather in their cap to whip these
visitors Friday night in Pirate Stadium.
DEWEYVILLE over HULL-DAISETTA—The Pirates need to regroup after
their setback to one of the district’s top teams. But they will have to play good sound
ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN over APPLE SPRINGS—The Lions
will be up against one of the better six-man teams in Southeast Texas and need to come
up with their best performance of the season.
LAMAR over INCARNATE WORD---The Cardinals stunned everyone
including the Las Vegas boys in their triple-overtime upset victory over top-rated Sam
Houston State last week. But they will need to come off Cloud 9 and continue their sound
fundamental football for this road game.
McNEESE STATE over HOUSTON BAPTIST—Any game the Cowboys win
for the rest of the season will have to be classified as an upset victory because they are in
11 th place in the 12-team Southland Conference. The Pokes led 24-20 at Central Arkansas
but were outplayed in the second half and lost 40-31.
