No. 9 Ouachita Parish Lions face their biggest challenge yet, this Friday night as they host the top-seeded Class 5A Archbishop Rummel Raiders in the third round of playoffs.
The Lions left Ruston last week after knocking off the Bearcats in a 28-17 victory in the second round of playoffs. The Lions beat the Bearcats in week 6 of the regular season with a 48-33 score and repeated with a win during last week's regional playoffs.
It was the first time in four years that the Lions have advanced beyond the second round. In 2011, the Lions lost to Carencro, 28-24 but the Lions (10-2) open their stadium this week for a quarterfinals faceoff with Archbishop Rummel (12-0).
