Red River High is moving ahead this weekend planning for a home playoff game Friday night versus Rayville. Principal JC Dickey told the Journal, “The dispute is in 3A and may have a small effect on us but we are making plans using the final power rankings that were sent out.”
Red River is ranked #9 and Rayville #24 (see below). That would set up the two teams playing in Strother Stadium on Friday. The school posted that tickets will be $10.
Here is the story published earlier in the day:
On Sunday the Louisiana High School Athletic Association notified the media that the release of football playoff brackets for all classes will be delayed. LHSAA said they will be available on Monday.
The LLHSAA said, “Due to an emergency appeal in the 3A Bracket, which affects all brackets, the final brackets will be released after the appeal is finalized on Monday, November 8th at 11:00am on the LHSAA Live App and at 12:00pm on the LHSAA Website.
Meanwhile the Power Rankings have been finalized and those have been released. The top 10 in 2-A is below.
Red River finished the season ranked #9. Bulldog arch enemy Many Tigers finished ranked #1 again this year. Many is the defending state champs. Red River’s other strong opponent, Avoyelles dropped in the final power rankings from #3 to #4. That was due to a 50 to 32 strong Red River victor Friday night.
Red River is anticipating a home game for the first round of the playoffs. Their opponent will be announced on Monday.
