Five new opponents dot North Caddo football schedule

By LEE HILLER, Journal Sports

North Caddo goes into the 2022 football season with half of its schedule replaced from last season. Neville and West Ouachita are new non-district opponents and Calvary, Loyola and Green Oaks are district newbies.

The Titans start with hosting Bossier, who moved up to the season opener after being last season’s third opponent. The game has been moved to a Thursday night kickoff because of the large number of games being played in Northwest Louisiana the first week of the season, and a limited pool of officials. The two schools have played each other four of the last five years with each team winning two of those.

North Webster comes to Vivian the following week. The Knights were one of three teams that defeated the Titans last season.

North Caddo travels the next three weeks, first to Alexandria to play in the third week of the season. The Titans have defeated the Bears each of the last three seasons.

A trip to Monroe follows with a date at Class 4A power Neville, followed by a game at West Ouachita southwest of West Monroe.

District 1-2A games take over the schedule from there, beginning with a home matchup against Calvary. The Cavaliers have won all 12 games played between the two from 2007 to 2018.

North Caddo is back on the road to Sibley to play Lakeside before returning home to face Green Oaks. The Titans have defeated Lakeside 12 of 18 times since 2003 while Green Oaks has won 10 of the 17 games played against North Caddo.

Road games at Loyola and D’Arbonne Woods finish out the regular season.
