LCMS opens football season with a 40-14 win

Lamar County Middle School opened its football season here last week with an impressive 40-14 win over Gray Station at Trojan Field. After a 71 yard touchdown run by Micquavious Searcy was negated by a penalty, the first of three long touchdown runs called back for flags on the Trojans, Lawrence Austin scored from 32 yards out. Searcy added the two-point conversion to give LCMS an 8-0 lead. On the Greyhounds’ next possession Searcy blocked a punt. Lance Austin picked it up and returned 25 yards for a touchdown. Lawrence Austin scored for Lamar on the next possession on a 46 yard run. Lance Austin found Tyler Scandrett open for the two point conversion to give the Trojans a 22-0 lead. Gray Station fumbled the ensuing kick and Searcy recovered for LCMS. Searcy scored from five yards out later in the possession. The Greyhounds mounted a drive on their next possession but Lawrence Austin stopped the scoring threat with an interception in the end zone. Lance Austin took the ball on the first play from scrimmage and raced 80 yards for a touchdown. That was called back on a holding penalty. In the second half, after a fumble recovery by Darraevious Lyons, Lance Austin scored from five yards out. Gray Station got on the board with just under six minutes in the third quarter on an eight yard run. Lamar answered with a one yard touchdown run by Quentin Frazier. The Greyhounds came right back, scoring on a 60 yard run and two point play. The Trojans scored one more time on a 52 yard run by Jamari McDowell but that touchdown was called back on a penalty.
