The Saint Paul’s Wolves will travel to play the Northshore Panthers on a Thursday night. Hurricane Ida’s effect on this high school football season has been very eminent. Many fields have been deemed not safe and any games taking place on said fields unplayable. The Wolves have reaped the benefits of this. Saint Paul’s is one of the few schools that has a field that was deemed playable. The Wolves have a dominant 3-0 home record at Hunter Stadium this season. While the game scheduled for this week was originally supposed to take place at Northshore, the Wolves and Panthers will now duel at the neutral site of Pearl River High School on Thursday Night.
Ever since their 41-2 away losses to Zachary, the Wolves have gone 4-0 with a 3-0 district record to start the season. Last Friday, the Wolves knocked off rival Covington and returned the Brown Jug to Saint Paul’s. Juniors Matthew Cody and Jacob Johnson both took an interception to the house, putting an exclamation point on a 35-14 Saint Paul’s victory.
On the other sideline, Northshore are also off to a 4-1 start, with their one loss being a 49-7 beat down from Ponchatoula. The Panthers rebounded last week with a 41-20 road win last Friday over Fontainebleau. Both squads will battle in a district clash on Thursday night with both teams looking for their fifth win of the season.
