4 Games In Acadiana Kickoff Week 7 HS Football Schedule
Four Thursday night games involving Acadiana area schools kickoff the seventh week of the 2016 high school football schedule.
Yes, it’s hard to believe, but only four weeks remain in the 2016 regular season.
The four games are listed below:
West St. Mary at Notre Dame:
In all honesty, you really can't like West St. Mary's chances in this District 5-2A game.
Notre Dame, the top-ranked 2A team in the state, is 6-0, overall, and 3-0 in district play, while West St. Mary will enter at 1-4, and 1-2, respectively.
Notre Dame defeated Opelousas Catholic, 44-12, earlier this year, while West St. Mary fell to that same OC team last week, 55-0.
The Pioneers have outscored district foes, 150-40, while West St. Mary has been outscored, 141-40.
Leesville at Rayne:
This is a very interesting District 4-3A contest.
Rayne is 5-1, but lost their district opener last week, falling to LaGrange, 15-14. The Wolves, who are averaging 29 points-per-game, have quality wins over such teams as Breaux Bridge and Eunice.
Leesville is 3-3, overall, and 1-0 in district play. The three teams they've beaten this year (Westlake, Pineville, and Washington-Marion) have a combined record of only 2-16, but the three teams they lost to (South Beauregard, Alexandria, and Iowa) have an impressive combined record of 15-3.
Basile at Westminster:
This is a District 5-1A game between two undefeated (1-0) teams.
Overall, Basile is 2-4, and has been held to 7 points or less in four of their six games, while Westminster, who will enter at 4-2 overall, has held opponents to 20 points or less in four of their six outings.
Basile may have some issues moving the ball.
Catholic (Point Coupee) at St. Edmund:
This is another District 5-1A affair.
St. Edmund is only 2-4 overall, but have played an extremely good schedule, with losses to Northwest, Opelousas Catholic, and Beau Chene, who have a combined record of 16-2.
The Blue Jays have struggled, offensively, this season, scoring only 19 points in their first five games, but did put up some points in a 31-28 win over False River in their district opener last week.
Catholic (Point Coupee) is 1-5, overall, and 0-1 in district play, after losing to Westminster last week, 34-6. Their only win was a 34-0 triumph over winless St. John.
St. Edmund has a little bit better resume, but will that translate into a victory?
