KAZ’S FEARLESS FORECAST
Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over LIBERTY—The Mustangs found out the hard
way last week that if you turn the ball over multiple times you can get hurt. Those three
early turnovers resulted in Hardin-Jefferson taking a 12-7 lead in the first period.
Fortunately, the ‘Stangs scored 42 straight points and won 49-12. Things won’t be that
easy at Liberty Friday as the Panthers try to even their record at 4-4. However, it will not
HUFFMAN over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—This will be the
Battlin’ Bears final home game of the regular season with the winner being the
undefeated sole leader in District 11-4A-I. The Bears have the home field advantage but
the Falcons have the state ranking.
BRIDGE CITY over LIVINGSTON—The Cardinals are capable of playing a
mistake-free game and that’s probably what it will take for this final road game of the
ORANGEFIELD over WARREN—The once-beaten Bobcats should remain
that way after Friday night’s game at Warren, which stands at 2-6 this season. Hopefully
the ‘Cats will not look ahead to next week’s final regular-season game at Anahuac and
just take care of business in this game.
VIDOR over BAYTOWN LEE—The Pirates have been playing better than a
.500 team, yet they must win Friday night to attain that break-even mark. They do it!!
SAN AUGUSTINE over DEWEYVILLE—The Pirates run into another buzz-
saw this week with the undefeated and state-ranked San Augustine team.
LAMAR over CENTRAL ARKANSAS—The Cardinals have a habit of
finishing the regular season strong, so an upset over these visiting Golden Bears should
follow the script for 2019 just like last season.
McNEESE STATE over NORTHWESTERN STATE—The Demons of
Natchitoches always come to Lake Charles and give the Cowboys all they can handle.
This trip should be no different.
