|Sterlington, J-Hodge meet Friday|
The Sterlington Panthers (4-5, 2-1 in district 2-2A) have shown a flare for the dramatic recently with overtime showdowns in the last two weeks.
Sterlington lost a hard-fought overtime game to Farmerville, 51-50, two weeks ago. Last Friday, however, the Panthers survived the overtime tilt by beating Lake Providence, 32-26.
Quarterback Logan Dobson was again the catalyst for the Panthers offense. Dobson completed 23-of-35 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns to pace Sterlington.
Running back De'Undre Gray scored on a 20-yard reception and an overtime touchdown run that gave Sterlington the victory. The Panthers will again need offensive fireworks when traveling to Jonesboro-Hodge (5-4) this week.
The winner of Friday's contest will see a playoff spot when the brackets are officially unveiled Sunday afternoon.
"Offensively we are moving the football," Sterlington head coach Mike Collins said. "Jonesboro-Hodge will be real physical and we have to match that intensity to be successful."
Jonesboro-Hodge is reeling after an upset at the hands of 1-A powerhouse Mangham. The Dragons limited J-Hodge to 64 yards rushing in navigating to the victory. Jonesboro-Hodge could not solve the rushing attack of Mangham, and this area is one that Sterlington will have a chance at putting up numbers if they get the blocks up front.
Although Sterlington has owned the series in recent years, it is the Tigers who want to get a bad taste out of their mouths this week. Sterlington felt that pain against Farmerville just a short time ago as well.
Sterlington did not get the defensive performance it hoped for last week. The Panthers look to contain the running game of the Tigers and continue to improve in the area of tackling.
Coaches on both sides will try to give their team the upper hand in the trenches to be able to control the clock and keep their defenses resting on the sidline.
