This week’s GameTime Louisiana matchup features a Class 5A District 3 contest between the Sulphur Golden Tors vs Southside Sharks – Friday, October 23rd at 7:00 pm CT.
The Sulphur Golden Tors have only played one game this season, a 27-14 loss to Lafayette High School (3-0). The Golden Tors led 14-7 at the half, but they wouldn’t score in the second half and the Mighty Lions came back to get the come from behind victory.
This is Chris Towery’s first year as head coach of Sulphur, and they hope a road trip to Southside High School will get them even at 1-1 on the season.

SULPHUR vs SOUTHSIDE
We were anticipating the Sharks to be the team to de throne Acadiana. Not so much. The Tors on the other hand playe dtheir 1st game of the year and they show some spunk. But is it enough?
