Delta Charter hosts St. Fredrick in homecoming game


FERRIDAY — Delta Charter will host St. Frederick tonight in a homecoming matchup that is among the highlights of high school football in the Miss-Lou this week.

Delta Charter broke a four-game losing streak with last week’s 40-12 LHSAA District 2-1A win on the road over the Tensas high School Panthers.

Delta Charter goes into tonight’s homecoming matchup 2-1, 1-3 against St. Frederick High School (5-2, 3-1) of Monroe, Louisiana.

The Delta Charter Storm will not only be out to win their homecoming gridiron battle, but also to keep from falling back into the losing column.

Kick off is 7 tonight at Delta Charter in Ferriday.

ACCS hosts Central Private

Adams County Christian School hosts Central Private at 7 tonight.

ACCS was undefeated (8-0, 2-0) after last Friday’s 39-6 win over rival Cathedral High School.

Earlier this week, however, the team announced the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools wins had stripped the team of seven wins because a member of ACCS’s team had been ruled ineligible.

School officials, however, had learned of the infraction before last week’s game against Cathedral and the ineligible player did not play, so last week’s win against Cathedral stands.

A win tonight against Central Private (4-4, 0-2) could keep the Rebels in playoff contention, giving ACCS (1-7, 1-1) its second divisional win.

“We have a one-game season now. It’s win or it’s over,” King said earlier this week.

Natchez at North Pike

Natchez High (5-2, 3-1) travels to Summit to take on North Pike High School (2-6, 1-3) tonight at 7.

The Natchez Bulldogs are looking for their third straight win after beating Brookhaven 34-33 last Friday at Tom F. Williams Memorial Stadium.

Natchez beat South Jones 27-24 the week before.
