Perhaps the most intriguing game features Slidell at Mandeville in a battle of clear contenders for the District 6-5A championship.
Slidell (3-1, 1-0) has won three straight games after opening the season with a tough 16-13 overtime loss to Jesuit in a game streams live at CrescentCitySports.com.
The Tigers opened district play with an impressive 21-7 win at McGinty Stadium over St. Paul’s last Friday night.
Senior quarterback Luke Guidry and receiver Jahyde Williams have been an outstanding combination while Trevel Watts and Kendall Carter have keyed the run game.
