Trojans look to move on to next round

FERRIDAY — Ferriday High Trojans and Kinder High Yellow Jackets come into Friday’s Class 2A Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs both on winning streaks.

For the past two-playoff games this season, Ferriday has played at home at Melz Field. Ferriday won 58-0 over Vinton High in the first round of the Louisiana High School Athletics Association Class 2A game.

In last week’s second round playoff game, Ferriday won 36-13 over Port Allen to advance to tonight’s quarterfinal game against Kinder.

Kinder has also played at home for the last two-playoff games this season. Kinder won 42-6 over Rosepine in the first round. Last Friday night, Kinder won 28-14 over Red River High.

To have tonight’s quarterfinal round game at home, Ferriday Head Coach Stanley Smith said it’s great to play at home.

“To be hosting the quarterfinal game is huge,” Smith said. “It’s after Thanksgiving and we’re going to have both families and alumni at home. I’m expecting a packed house. We’re going to come out and play our brand of ball.”

One of the players to watch for Ferriday is Kobe Johnson. In last Friday’s second-round game against Port Allen, Johnson ran for two rushing touchdowns. In the last two-playoff games against Vinton and Port Allen, Johnson has rushed for a total of three touchdowns.

“Kobe has been playing lights out and solid on both sides of the ball this year,” Smith said. “He’s a good player to have and he’s a playmaker.”

Kickoff for tonight’s game is at 7 at Melz Field at Ferriday High School.
