At the time it loomed big. By the time it was over, it was little consolation in a 45-0 loss.
That is: Houston County holding Lee County scoreless through the first quarter. In fact, the Bears forced the Trojans to punt three times – with little to show for each possession.
That was the good news. The not so good news was Lee County also forced Houston County to punt the same amount of times – also with little to show for each possession.
That also bought the host Trojans time to finally get rolling. They did when Davion Sanders scampered 16 yards for the first score. Austin Beaver made it 7-0. The Bears punted. Lee County scored again. That was on an 18-yard run by Shaundrious Kimbrough. Kimbrough scored again on Lee County’s next possession. The point after made it 21-0.
The second half was all Trojans. Kimbrough scored on a 39-yard run to get the third started. Then it was Jeremiah Engram’s turn as he scored twice on passes – six and 55 yards. Beaver made both points after and then made a 45-yard field goal in the fourth to finish off the scoring.
The loss kept Houston County winless in 1-AAAAAA – 0-2, 2-7. Lee County improved to 3-0, 9-0.
