(WVUE) -

The two most prolific rushers in the New Orleans metro area are set to clash in the Class 5A Quarterfinals after Covington beat Ouachita Parish and Hahnville got past Ruston. The Lions survived a late comeback to win 35-28 while the Tigers endured two missed field goals by Ruston to win, 23-21.

Covington's Devin Brumfield rushed for two touchdowns and even passed for one to quarterback Josh Alfaro. He remains committed to Texas Tech while Kansas commit Anthony "Pooka" Williams matched the three touchdowns while running for over 200 yards for the second week.

The matchup of high-scoring offenses led by dynamic running backs will be FOX 8 Football Friday's Game of the Week.
