Crescent City Sports to live stream Shaw-St. Augustine playoff game Thursday night
NEW ORLEANS – An opening round matchup of District 9-5A schools Archbishop Shaw and St. Augustine will be live streamed Thursday night on Crescent City Sports.
CCS’ live streaming coverage begins just prior to the 7 p.m. kickoff from Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans. Ken Berthelot and Wayde Keiser will describe the action.
As is not uncommon in the 11-team Division I bracket that includes all seven schools in the Catholic League, Thursday’s game is a regular-season rematch. The teams met two Saturdays ago, also at Gormley, with the Purple Knights prevailing 21-9.
St. Augustine (4-4, 3-3 in 9-5A) is the No. 8 seed in the Division I playoff bracket, while Shaw (3-5, 2-4) is seeded ninth. Thursday’s winner advances to the quarterfinal matchup with Catholic High, the top seed in Division I, next week in Baton Rouge.
Despite the Thursday night kickoff, this will not be a short week of preparation for either team. The Purple Knights ended their regular season last Thursday with a victory over Holy Cross, while the Eagles had a bye in Week 10.
CCS also expects to have a live stream of a first-round matchup on Friday night.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 11th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 350 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2021-22. CCS will also produce additional events that will both be televised by Cox Communications and streamed on the site.
