|Ferriday visits Sterlington|
Ferriday High travels to a wounded Sterlington Panther team as the Trojans hope to get back on the winning track after being upset by Lake Providence Friday night.
Sterlington has lost five straight games, including a 27-21 setback to Mangham last week. The Panthers are 0-3 in District 2-2A.
Sterlington is ranked No. 32 in Class 2A in the latest power ratings.
"We are fighting for our lives to make the playoffs and that's something that is very unusual after 12 or 13 years," said Sterlington coach Mike Collins. "We have dug ourselves a deep hole."
"They are fighting for their playoff lives and that's not something they are not used to," said Ferriday coach Freddie Harrison. "Coach Collins is going to do everything he can to keep that from happening on his watch. We expect them to be 100 percent focused."
Ferriday, 6-2 overall and 2-1 in district, dropped from No. 9 to No. 10 after its loss to Lake Providence.
"I know they are coming in here mad as hornets," Collins said. "I know Coach Harrison will have them focused on the task at hand. They have some very good athletes and good size. (Bobby) Madison is a man running downhill, he is just an exceptional running back. No. 9 (Davonta Scott) runs the ball real well and No. 2 (quarterback Ronald Lawson) has a good arm."
Sterlington is led by senior quarterback Logan Dopson, who has passed for more than 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns this season.
"We just don't have the size up front to run the ball," Collins said.
"They are going to throw the ball and here we go facing another good quarterback," Harrison said
Ferriday closes out with 7-1 Farmerville at home. The Farmers, rated No. 6 in Class 2A power ratings, are unbeaten in district.
"We put ourselves in this position," Harrison said. "We have to win out to stay in the top 16 and get a home playoff game, which is what you battle all year for. Our strength of schedule has helped us a whole lot."
