The St. Paul’s Wolves and the Covington High Lions will face off in a District 6-5A football matchup Friday night in Hunter Stadium in the annual battle for the Little Brown Jug, a tradition that goes back over 80 years between the rival teams.

The Lions are currently 3-2 on the season (1-1 in District 6-5A), and the Wolves are 4-1 (2-0 in District 6-5A). Last year, the Wolves defeated the Lions 27-10 at Hunter Stadium.

The game will feature a pair of standout sophomore running backs in the Wolves’ Corey Williamson and the Lions’ Devin Brumfield. Through week four, Brumfield was second on the northshore with 521 rushing yards, and Williamson was tied for second on the northshore in scoring with six touchdowns, according to nola.com.

The Lions are coming off of a 54-21 rout over district foe Slidell. Defensively, senior Justin Ikonomopolous led the Lions with 39 tackles through week four.

Last week, the Wolves traveled to Hammond to take on the Hammond High Tornadoes. The Wolves jumped out to a 48-0 halftime lead on their way to a 51-8 victory. In the game, senior quarterback Kenny Sears threw for 181 yards and five touchdowns.

The 2005 St. Paul’s team will be honored for its accomplishments during the game.
