Caddo Magnet boys soccer already shook up the Division I, District I race when the Mustangs beat Byrd 3-2 on Tuesday.
Now Magnet (8-4-2, 5-2-1) can do it again Thursday when travel to Lee Hedges to take on district leader Captain Shreve (9-3-2, 7-0-2).
The teams tied 2-2 in December, but Captain Shreve has yet to lose a match to a Louisiana team. Magnet is on a five-match winning streak and six-match unbeaten streak.

The Tigers have a half-game edge on Loyola (7-8, 5-1-1) after the Flyers tied North DeSoto (4-11-1, 3-2-1) on Tuesday, and now Benton (winners of six of its last seven) must go to North DeSoto to secure at least a share of the title.
Benton ends the district season with Minden (1-6-1). The Tigers climbed to No. 5 in the Division II power ratings and are receiving votes along with No. 23 Loyola.
Evangel (7-5, 5-0) leads Division III, District 1 with a perfect league record with no wins coming by less than three goals.
