St. Mary’s home for Friday night playoff game

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s delayed release of its 2021 state football playoff brackets Monday morning provided good news for St. Mary’s.

The Tigers will host their opening round game in Turpin Stadium Friday night at 7 against Metarie Park Country Day.

The LHSAA postponed Sunday’s scheduled playoff announcement to conduct a hearing this morning to resolve an appeal by a New Orleans high school related to its playoff status, delaying the announcement until today.

Check Tuesday morning’s Natchitoches Parish Journal for more information on the local high schools’ playoff games.
