Crescent City Sports to live stream St. Thomas More-De La Salle football playoff game Friday
A Division II semifinal matchup in the Louisiana high school football playoffs between defending champion St. Thomas More and top-seeded De La Salle will be streamed live on CrescentCitySports.com Friday night.
The live stream from Tulane University’s Yulman Stadium will begin at 6:50 p.m., with kickoff at 7. Lenny Vangilder and Lonn Ellzey will describe the action.
The Cougars (11-1) are the No. 4 seed in the Division II bracket and are coming off a 31-29 victory over Parkview Baptist in a rematch of last year’s Division II title game. The Cavaliers (10-0), which went undefeated in the regular season for the second straight year, knocked off Archbishop Hannan 52-14 in the quarterfinals last Friday.
STM won its first-ever state football championship a year ago and is looking to reach the Allstate Sugar Bowl LHSAA Prep Classic for the third consecutive season. De La Salle is seeking its first trip to a football state championship game since 1961 – two decades before the Prep Classic format was introduced.
The winner of the STM-DLS game faces either University Lab or St. Charles Catholic for the Division II title Dec. 8 at 3:30 p.m. in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Crescent City Sports will feature live streaming of no fewer than 30 high school sporting events throughout the 2017-18 school year.
