Games This Week

WEST ORANGE-STARK over JASPER—The Mustangs have had a tough time at Jasper in the past, but it appears as if the Mustangs are just about ready for District 21-3A play as they fine-tune their program for the final game of their pre-district schedule.

COLDSPRING over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—The Bears seem to be catching all of the elite teams in Class 3A as Coldspring comes to town Friday after losing 24-0 to Navasota two weeks ago and then coming back to nip LaMarque 24-22 last Friday. The trap is set by LCM to surprise this team into thinking Friday night’s came will be a yawner.

ORANGEFIELD over BEAUMONT KELLY—After facing three potent opponents the Bobcats will welcome a game against an unranked team. But they must take on this victory-hungry Bulldog team in Beaumont, which should make the task of finishing their pre-district slate at 3-1 a bit tougher.

ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN over MOUNT CARMEL—The Lions take a quick break from their district schedule to host this Houston-Area foe. The game will kick off at 5 p.m. Saturday on Lions Field.

LAMAR over BACONE—The Cards should have a great opportunity to even their season record at 2-2 as they welcome this small school from Oklahoma for a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday at Provost-Umphrey Stadium in Beaumont.

McNEESE STATE over WEBER STATE—This opponent comes all the way over from the left coast and is hungry for another victory over a Southland Conference foe. The Wildcats beat Stephen F. Austin 50-40 to open their season and then suffered huge losses to Division I opponents Utah and Utah State. So the Cowboys had better be ready for a knock-down, drag-out in Lake Charles Saturday night.
