NEW ORLEANS, LA - This week’s Game of the Week features two teams heading in different directions, as the #11-seeded McKinley Panthers travel to the Shrine on Airline to take on the six-seeded Brother Martin Crusaders in week one of the playoffs.
The Panthers come into this game with a 4-6 overall record (2-3 in district), having nothing to lose and everything to gain. McKinley got beat pretty soundly last week, losing to the defending Division I State Champions, the Catholic–Baton Rouge Bears, 46-9.
Whereas the Brother Martin Crusaders come into this game winners of five in a row, including last week’s victory against arch-rival Jesuit to finish the regular season strong.
This Division I first round matchup looks like a sure win for the Crusaders, but the game has to be played between the hash marks. With nothing to lose, the Panthers come into this game looking for a big upset to shake up the second round of the Division I bracket. Expect a high-scoring affair for this one.
Join us live beginning at 6:40 p.m. on WWL.com, with David Kahn (DK) handling the play-by-play, myself, Tony D’Amico (The Ironman), with the color, and Thommy Boesch covering the sidelines.
