Longview not looking to "extend" Olive Branch

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

The Battle On The Border high school football weekend at Independence Stadium will end with an impressive match-up between two teams coming in to Shreveport from out of state.  Longview, Texas will meet Olive Branch, Mississippi, which is already 3-0 on the young season and has outscored its opponents 133-35.

Longview will enter the game 1-1, losing its opener in Allen, Texas against Coppell in the Tom Landry Classic.  After holding a 24-12 lead in that game, Coppell came from behind to deliver the Lobos a heartbreaking loss.

Longview head coach John King says Olive Branch is the best team he has seen in his 14 years of coaching and needless to say, he's expecting the finish to five games in two days to be well worth the wait.

The Battle On The Border begins Friday at 6pm in Independence Stadium with Calvary and St. Thomas More of Lafayette. That game will be followed by Bastrop and C. E. Byrd.  Saturday's action begins at 2pm with Acadiana and Neville, followed by Marshall, TX and parkway at 5pm, then Longview and Olive Branch.
