Crescent City Sports to live stream two district title matchups this week
NEW ORLEANS – On the final week of the regular season in Louisiana high school football, a pair of district championships in southeast Louisiana will be decided in live streams on Crescent City Sports.
CCS has coverage of Thursday’s District 9-4A showdown between De La Salle and Booker T. Washington and Friday’s District 8-4A matchup between Lakeshore and Franklinton.
Thursday’s 7 p.m. matchup from Tad Gormley Stadium, which will be simulcast on NASH ICON 106.1 FM, pits the Cavaliers (9-0, 3-0) and the Lions (4-5, 3-0) for the outright 9-4A title.
De La Salle is second behind only St. Thomas More in the Crescent City Sports Class 4A rankings and is third in the LHSAA’s Select Division II power rankings, with a bye in next week’s opening round of the state playoffs likely secured. Booker T. Washington is 19th in the power rankings and would also likely secure a first-round playoff home game with a victory.
Friday’s 7 p.m. kickoff in Franklinton features the Titans (7-2, 4-0) and Demons (5-4, 3-1), two of three teams in the race for the 8-4A championship.
A Lakeshore win would give the Titans the outright district title, while a Franklinton victory would force a tie with Lakeshore and possibly Salmen for the crown.
Also at stake for both teams is a first-round playoff home game next week. In the LHSAA’s Non-Select Division II power rankings, Lakeshore is No. 13 and Franklinton is No. 17. In the non-select brackets, the top four seeds receive first-round byes and seeds Nos. 5-16 have first round home games.
Coverage on CCS begins at 6:45 p.m. Thursday and 6:50 p.m. Friday.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 12th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 400 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2022-23.
