The Lions lost to the Westwood Warriors last week 21-46 to make their record zero wins and three losses.

“We held the offensive in the first half and shut down number 11 for the whole game allowing him to only have 3 catches, but we didn’t execute well on stopping number 30, their running back, because we were all too worried about the pass,” senior Colt Davis said.

We have to continue to focus and still play fast.

The Warriors quickly pulled away scoring three unanswered touchdowns and one two point conversion to lead 0-22. Senior Dalton Flowers and junior Riley Wells pulled the score back to 14-22 for halftime. The Warriors came out of halftime and increased their lead to 14-46 until Flowers scored again in the fourth quarter. The game would finish 21-46 with the Warriors gathering the win.

“I was very disappointed [in going down quickly],” head coach Tim Smith said. “Not in our kids but we had a few calls that did not allow us to get into rhythm. Seemed like every big play, we got a penalty. We have to continue to focus and still play fast.”

The next game will be played against the Stony Point Tigers at Kelly Reeves Stadium on September 21 at 7 p.m.
