Calvary back in District 1-2A for 2022 football season

By LEE HILLER, Journal Sports

Calvary’s football schedule for 2022 will be a bit different with the recent reclassification of the LHSAA that moved the Cavaliers back up to Class 2A after playing the past three years in 1A. The District 1-2A opponents Calvary had in 2017 and 2018 will be the same along with the addition of Green Oaks.

Last year’s Class A finalist Logansport will again begin the season for Calvary, this year at home in Jerry Barker Stadium. Calvary has won two of the three meetings in the series.

Calvary will play its next two games at Lee Hedges Stadium on Thursday nights against District 1-5A opponents. First up will be a first-ever matchup with Captain Shreve.

Byrd will host the Cavaliers in week three. The effects of the coronavirus on schedules last season broke an eight-year run of the Cavaliers and Yellow Jackets meeting in the regular season. Byrd has won six of the eight the schools have played.

The Cavs then hit the road to Monroe to face Wossman for the first time in school history.

Mansfield will come to Jerry Barker Stadium in a mid-season non-district game. The Wolverines are competing in District 3-2A after three years in 1-3A. The four previous meetings, three won by Calvary, were played as District 1-2A opponents.

A trip to Vivian for a date with North Caddo begins the Cavaliers’ return to 1-2A play. Calvary has won all 12 previous meetings that last occurred in 2018.

Calvary returns home to welcome Green Oaks for a week seven matchup before traveling to Farmerville to face a much-improved D’Arbonne Woods program. A week nine home game with Lakeside will precede playing at Loyola’s Messmer Stadium in the regular-season finale.
