|Neville takes trip to Winnsboro|
The Neville Tigers got one step closer to their goal of a district championship with a 36-7 win at West Ouachita last Friday.
The Tigers now look forward to a trip to Winnsboro where they will tangle with the much-improved Franklin Parish Patriots.
Last week in Calhoun, Neville wasted little time in messing up the field and any chance the Chiefs had of a victory with an incredibly efficient running game.
"I thought we ran the ball real well," Neville head coach Mickey McCarty said. "I thought the offensive line did a real good job for us. We handled the weather elements rather well too I thought."
A steady dose of Tyler Buford, Jeremy Runner and Ricco Pollard kept the ball away from West Ouachita and kept putting up points for the Tigers.
With the Patriots of Franklin Parish, Neville is facing a team that for years has been the whipping post of the district 3-4A teams. Now the Patriots seem to show new life and a renewed sense of hope after an overtime win over Wossman last week and just a seven-point loss at Bastrop the week before.
"They are certainly an improving program with a staff that has been there," McCarty said. "We have a lot of respect for them. We have not seen a team that runs the wing-T yet and they can throw the ball effeciently as well."
Running back Noble Johnson leads Franklin Parish in yards and he rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries last week against Wossman.
Darrius Foy has also been effective on the run for the Patriots and scored the game-winning touchdown in the extra period last week.
Neville still has some bugs to work out of their scheme. With wet field conditions the last month, it has been an inconsistent passing game that coaches feel needs to improve for the team to be successful in the playoffs.
"There is always room for improvement," McCarty said. "We want to be balanced and pass the ball more but conditions have not been favorable."
The game will be broadcast live on the radio by Star 101.9 FM with a pre-game show beginning at 6:30 p.m.
