Shreveport Bossier High School Football Picks This Week
Another big week of High School football games. There are a couple of Thursday night games. One has Huntington battling Green Oaks at Independence Stadium.
The other Thursday night contest has Shreve on the road at Natchitoches Central
I think this will be a very tough game for Shreve. QB Trey Rogers sat out last weeks game with a concussion. Natchitoches Central is 2-1 on the year. Their only loss is to Calvary. Last week, the Chiefs pummelled Benton 52-6. They are averaging 35 points/game. So expect to see lots of offensive action. Shreve is also 2-1 on the year, with wins over Huntington and Green Oaks. Their only loss came at home against Ouachita.
BTW hosts Red River....I think BTW might have a chance to win this one. They have posted wins already this year over in town rival Fair Park and Homer.
North Caddo is at home to take on Merryville. North Caddo wins this one to put Merryville at 1-3 on the year.
Evangel is on the road at St. Thomas Moore
Calvary stays home to play Teurlings Catholic. Calvary took a 69-48 beating at the hands of Carencro last week, and I am guessing Coach John Bachman has lit a fire under his guys to get them ready for this game. This should be no contest, but the Rebels had no trouble trouncing Alexandria 2 weeks ago.
Southwood and Northwood battle at Lee Hedges. Northwood is undefeated on the year, and I don't think that will change.
Haughton is hosting West Ouachita
This could be Haughton's toughest test of the year. The Bucs are 3-0 having not been tested yet this season. But the Chiefs are 1-2 on the year and this shouldn't be too big a hurdle for the powerful Haughton squad. The Bucs defense is stepping up this year, allowing only 23 points in 3 games, while the offense is averaging 37 points per game.
North Desoto visits Benton. I'm taking North Desoto in this one.
Parkway stays home to tackle Minden
This should be an easy win for Parkway. The Panthers will have little or no trouble starting off the year, 4-0. The powerhouse offense should roll up the points against Minden.
Loyola is on the road at University Lab. As much as I don't want to, I have to take U-High in this one. They are 3-0 on the year and have put more than 70 points on the board in 3 games. The Flyer defense better show up to play.
North Webster visits Bossier. The Bearkats win this one.
Byrd is at Ruston. The Yellow Jackets continue to win.
Farmerville plays Fair Park at Independence Stadium. Farmerville takes this game.
Airline stays home to take on Woodlawn. Should be no trouble for Airline.
