Crescent City Sports, WGSO to broadcast Newman-East Jefferson, Vandebilt-Shaw games
Crescent City Sports’ extensive live video streaming coverage of high school sports includes a pair of non-district matchups this week – Newman at East Jefferson on Thursday and Vandebilt Catholic at Archbishop Shaw on Saturday.
The Newman-East Jefferson game kicks off at 6:30 p.m., while the Vandebilt-Shaw matchup begins at 11 a.m. Crescent City Sports’ Ken Trahan will call the play-by-play for both games, which will also air on WGSO 990 AM. He will be joined by Lonn Ellzey and Jordan Liuzza on Thursday, when coverage begins at 6:05 p.m., and by Mark Williams and Jeff Wooton on Saturday, when coverage begins at 10:45 a.m.
Newman, ranked No. 7 in Class 2A by Crescent City Sports and No. 6 by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association, will step up in class to face a 5A program in East Jefferson. The Greenies have scored 102 points in two victories.
Thursday’s game broadcast is presented by Lamarque Ford.
Saturday will be a special day on the Archbishop Shaw campus, beginning with the grand opening of its new stadium. The matchup with Vandebilt Catholic could be a defense-dominated game, as the Terriers are coming off a 13-7 victory over H.L. Bourgeois while the Eagles lost at Belle Chasse 12-10 last week.
After Saturday’s grand-opening game, Shaw will host its annual Shrimp and Jambalaya Festival on campus.
Crescent City Sports will feature live streaming of no fewer than 30 high school sporting events throughout the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce up to 10 more events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
