Local High Schools See Action This Week in Round 2 of La. State Playoffs
After the dust settled last Friday night here in District 1 of Northwest Louisiana, several of our local high schools emerged victorious and have advanced to Round 2 of the Louisiana State High School Football Playoffs.
While lots of the actual dates and times of some of these games are still listed as "To Be Determined" by the LHSAA, a safe assumption is that those games will be held at 7:00 pm Friday night.
Congratulations to all those who have advanced and will see action again this week. Here's what we've found so far.
In Class 5A, #11 Haughton's win over Live Oak, last Friday, gave them the opportunity to travel south to see action with #6 Alexandria. Incidentally, Haughton proved to be the only Non-Select 5A school in our area to advance to the second round with their next game with Alexandria set for 7:00 pm Friday in Alexandria.
In Class 4A, we are well represented with these games:
- #9 Huntington will travel to #8 Plaquemine. Game date and time to be determined.
- #12 Minden will travel to #5 Leesville. Game date and time to be determined.
- #14 North Desoto will head to #3 Tioga. Kickoff Friday night at 7:00 pm.
In Class 3A we only have one school advancing:
