Lamar County 41, ELHS 30:
BARNESVILLE — The Lamar County Trojans bounced back from their tie with Spalding on Aug. 31, defeating the Eagle’s Landing Golden Eagles 41-30 Sept. 7 in non-region action in their home opener.
A game that looked like a blowout turned out to be anything but as the Trojans (1-0-1) had to hold on for the win. Lamar led 28-6 at halftime.
“It was a wild game,” said Trojans first-year head coach Franklin Stephens. “We played well in the first quarter but not so well afterwards.”
Stephens said the team made plays when it had to, including blocking a kick for a safety. Lamar hosts Pike County Friday at 7:30 p.m.
