The Ouachita Christian Eagles and Westminster Academy Crusaders are set to meet in the championship round of the 2023 LHSAA Football Playoffs. The Eagles come into the game with a 10-1 record, while the Crusaders are 9-2. This is the first time the two teams have met in the playoffs since 2018, when the Crusaders won 28-14.
The Eagles are led by quarterback Landon Long and running back Trey Flowers. Long has thrown for 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this season, while Flowers has rushed for 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns. The Crusaders are led by quarterback Jack Miller and running back Zack Davis. Miller has thrown for 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, while Davis has rushed for 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns.
This game should be a close one, as both teams are evenly matched. The Eagles have a slight edge in experience, but the Crusaders have the home-field advantage. The winner of this game will be crowned the 2023 LHSAA Division II state champion.
I will provide a recap of the game after it is played.
