After putting up a very strong performance last week against Northwest High School, things are not getting any easier for the Pine Prairie Panthers. The sixth ranked team in Class 3A is coming to town to face the Panthers. Livonia is coming off of a 50-25 win over Ville Platte High last week.
After battling one of the best teams in Class 3A last week, the Ville Platte Bulldogs (3-4, 1-2) meet the Church Point Bears (6-3, 3-0). The Bulldogs fell to sixth-ranked Livonia last week 50-25 in Ville Platte, while Church Point went to Port Barre and took a 31-8 win.
Coming into week nine, it’s no secret things have been tough for Mamou. They have had to battle some very tough teams in a district that has two teams in Class 2A’s top ten and some other very formidable members. Mamou itself has also seen difficulties in their off-season schedule.
