Last updated 10/22/2019 at Noon
Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over HARDIN-JEFFERSON—The Mustangs should be raring to go after their bye week, and will be facing the hungry, winless Hawks at Dan Hooks Stadium in West Orange.
WO-S just needs to play its regular game and things should turn out just fine despite the fact Friday is Homecoming.
LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE over LIVINGSTON—The Battlin’ Bears should come out on top in this Homecoming battle if they don’t look ahead to next week’s big game against the undefeated Huffman Falcons.
LCM had a tough contest last week at Splendora, finally coming out on top 34-27.
LUMBERTON over BRIDGE CITY—The Raiders are fresh off a 21-9 victory over Livingston and return home to take on the improving Cardinals, who need to get back into the win column after four straight setbacks.
ORANGEFIELD over WOODVILLE—The Bobcats face another salty team in the Eagles, who have won only two games this year.
Orangefield has been playing solid football all season and should continue along that path Friday night.
VIDOR over NEDERLAND—The Pirates are plowing through one of the toughest schedules in Southeast Texas.
Vidor is destined for the playoffs next month and needs a big win over a team that is favored to beat them.
GROVETON over DEWEYVILLE—The Pirates will be facing one of the top Class 2A teams in the area, but has the same 5-2 record as Deweyville.
This would be a wonderful time for the Pirates to make a statement in front of their hometown fans.
McNEESE STATE OVER STEPHEN F. AUSTIN—The Cowboys are visiting the Lumberjacks in a game the oddsmakers call an even match.
The Pokes have shown some flashes of brilliance and could be ready to end the 2019 season with a winning streak.
