In the annual “Magnet Bowl” contest Wednesday night at Joe Yenni Stadium, Thomas Jefferson shut out Haynes 13-0 in a District 11-3A contest.

The Jaguars (4-5, 1-1) close out their regular season in district play at home against De La Salle next Thursday night, Nov. 7 at Hoss Memtsas Stadium in a game that you can listen to on 106.1 FM NASH ICON while the Yellow Jackets (3-4-1, 0-2) will host Kenner Discovery at Yenni, also on Thursday.

Three games highlight the Week 9 Thursday night schedule in the metro New Orleans area.

In District 8-5A, East Jefferson plays host to Higgins at 6:30 p.m. at Yenni. The Warriors (3-5, 3-2) are fighting to get into the Class 5A playoffs, hovering just outside of the top 32, at this point.

After winning three straight games, East Jefferson has dropped two straight to jeopardize its quest for the playoffs, falling 27-7 to John Ehret a week ago.

Quarterback Isaiah Lee, the metro Prep Player of the Week for the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club, 106.1 NASH ICON, Crescent City Sports and Friday Night Football for his performance in a 41-40 win over Bonnabel on Oct. 4, leads the Warriors. He is approaching 1,000 yards rushing and has 13 touchdowns on the season.

Higgins (2-6, 2-3) is led by quarterback Jerann Washington. The Hurricanes are out of the playoff picture but looking to continue to improve upon last year’s 1-9 record.

In District 11-3A, heavily favored De La Salle (4-3, 1-0) travels to Kenner to take on surprising Kenner Discovery (6-2, 1-0) at 6:30 p.m. The Cavaliers are ranked ninth in this week’s Crescent City Sports Class 3A Top 10 rankings. Talented running back Montrell Johnson is healthy now and making a huge difference for De La Salle, having scored 10 touchdowns.

The Cavaliers dominated Haynes 42-0 last week as Johnson scored a pair of touchdowns, as did P.J. Johnson.

The Swamp Owls have allowed just 23 points in their last four games and have a pair of shutout wins. Deshawn Clark returned an interception 91 yards for a touchdown and quarterback Kristian Kraft scored the game-winning touchdown in a thrilling 13-7 overtime win over Thomas Jefferson last week.

At Pan American Stadium, red hot McDonogh 35 (5-3, 2-0) battles Sophie B. Wright (1-7, 1-1) in a District 10-3A contest at 7 p.m.

Legendary coach Wayne Reese won his 250th career game last week as the Roneagles handled Douglass 43-8 as Reese became just the 22nd coach in Louisiana history to achieve 250 wins.

Steveland Williams rushed 15 times for 138 yards and three touchdowns to pace McDonogh 35 in the win over Douglass.

The Warriors scored their first win with a 33-8 victory over Abramson Sci Academy last week.
