Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—To get their only points of the game on the opening kickoff created a huge concern for the Mustangs’ coaching staff in their weather-shortened 14-6 loss at Nederland Friday night. As a result, the coaches will make it a tough week of practice on the team. And the team will make it a tough night on the visiting LC-M Battlin’ Bears Friday night at Dan Hooks Stadium in West Orange.
BRIDGE CITY over TARKINGTON—It’s always great to open the season with a resounding victory—especially on the road—which should make things much better for the Cardinals for their home opener Friday night.
WOODVILLE OVER ORANGEFIELD—The Eagles were outscored by another talented group of Eagles last week at Newton and will try to take out their frustrations on the visiting Bobcats Friday night. But don’t sell the ‘Cats short, they are more than capable of staging a huge upset.
VIDOR over BELLAIRE EPISCOPAL—The Pirates came out on top in their scoring match with Silsbee last week and should be able to handle this foe much better defensively.
DEWEYVILLE over CUSHING—The Pirates looked mighty powerful in their road win at West Hardin last week and should keep their winning streak alive at home Friday night if they don’t get over-confident.
LAMAR over NORTH AMERICAN UNIVERSITY—The Cardinals have been working real hard lining up their offense and defense for this opening game at Provost-Umphrey Stadium Saturday and should have the home fans feeling good when the final gun sounds.
McNEESE STATE over WEST FLORIDA—Hopefully the Cowboys won’t be looking ahead to next week’s big game at LSU and take care of business in this home opener at Cowboy Stadium.
