ferriday — It’s crunch time for the undefeated Ferriday Trojans as they hit the road to face the Farmerville Farmers Friday night

The Farmers (4-4) are on a four game winning streak and 3-0 in District 2-2A. They want to close out the season undefeated in district play.

“It gets harder and harder every week,” Ferriday head coach Freddie Harrison said. “They are playing for the district championship and a playoff spot.”

The Trojans are looking to get one step closer to that priceless undefeated regular season.

Defeating Farmerville won’t be easy Harrison said.

“They run right at you,” Harrison said. “They have two good running backs in Damien Maine and Ladarien Brown.”

Harrison said his defense would stack the line to control Farmerville’s power game.

“We have to stop the run first,” he said.

Ferriday’s offense has shown they can win by running or passing in past few weeks. They used the run to knock off Sterlington 18-13 and quarterback Kendrick Harris threw for over 200 yards in the first half against Beau Chene.

“We are going to take what they give us,” Harrison said. “If they try to stop the run, we’ll pass and we’ll run if they stop the pass. We’ll do what we have to do to win.”

Ferriday will be with out their starting running back Matt Smith for the second week in a row. Sophomores Bobby Madison and Neico Amado will continue to split time.

“Matt’s ankle is still hurt,” Harrison said. “We’ll run the ball by committee.”

Harrison said the main point for the Trojans is to stay focused and get rattled about going on the road.

“This is a big home game for Farmerville and they will be gunning to win,” Harrison said. “This is just a business trip for us and that is what we are going to do, take care of business.”

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
