Road warriors: Week 2 games in north Louisiana offer heavy mettle test for top teams

The phrase "Go West, young man" was attributed to newspaper editor Horace Greely in the 1800s and was designed to encourage American settlers to explore and move to Western states.
Instead of heading west, four local football teams head north looking to solidify their roles among Louisiana's elite. The road games for Catholic, East Ascension, Zachary and University High highlight a Week 2 schedule packed with possibilities.
Catholic and Zachary become Baton Rouge's first teams to participate in the Battle on the Border showcase at Shreveport's Independence Stadium. East Ascension (1-0), fresh off its scintillating 40-31 come-from-behind win over Zachary in Week 1, travels to just beyond Shreveport to play Haughton (1-0).
University High made one key statement with its 20-6 road win over John Ehret, a 5A semifinalist a year ago, in Week 1. Now the Class 3A Cubs look to make another when they travel to Monroe to take on traditional Class 4A power Neville (1-0).
