Area Football Report

Riverdale led off weekend football with a game on Thursday.  From the opening whistle, the Rebels dominated the Cougars from Franklin Academy.

Early in the evening a light rain began.  By the end of the first half, it was raining hard.  Video was streamed by Rodney Williams, and he said the other team forfeited at half time.

Final score was Riverdale 49 and Franklin 0.  Riverdale is now 7-1 on the season.  They are also ranked number one in their district.  Reporter Molly Seales will have the complete game report next Wednesday in the Journal.

On Friday night the Red River Bulldogs host defending state champion Many Tigers at the Dawg Pound.  Red River’s offense has scored more points than any other team in Louisiana, including all divisions. 

This fall, Red River is 3-1 overall with a 1-0 district record.  Many is 3-1 overall and this will be their first district contest.

For the past several seasons Many has dominated Red River.  The Bulldogs under first year coach Jeff Harper are looking to change that Friday night.  The Dawgs offense will concentrate on increasing the 207 points they have scored so far.  Friday night kickoff is at 7:00 pm.

The school said during the week that parking would be at a premium due to school facility construction.  Tailgating WILL NOT take place this week to accommodate more vehicles.
