Penalties, Dogs take down Trojans

The Lamar County Trojans called for a Red Out and broke out throwback red jerseys with black numerals outlined in white but yellow was the color of the night Friday at Trojan Field as LC dropped to 1-2 under a virtual avalanche of penalty flags as they fell to Mary Persons 20-7. These were not bad calls by the officials; LC earned them all legitimately. It appeared the pressure got to the Trojans. LC lost last year due to a controversy over lightning but, this year, LC, though out-athleted on the lines of scrimmage and well short of MP depth-wise, shot themselves in the foot in what was, otherwise, a competitive game. The Herald Gazette had LC at over 100 yards in penalties unofficially. At one point. LC head coach Jamie Abrams screamed at his troops, “What we are doing is not that hard. What are you doing?” Lamar fell to 1-2. MP is 3-0. Lamar will try to get back on track next Friday against Ola. The Mustangs are much improved over last year at 2-1. They opened the season with a 37-20 loss to Locust Grove then beat Morrow 41-6. Friday night they smacked McIntosh 26-0. Realtime scoring from the sidelines was provided by Walter Geiger. 6:34 1st qtr.: LC 7 MP 0: LJ Smith 3-yard TD pass to Pippin Davis. Dawson Davis PAT good. 5:00 2nd. qtr.: Lamar 7 MP 7: MP 12-yard TD run. PAT good. HALFTIME: LC 7 MP 7 2:19 3rd qtr. MP 14 LC 7: MP two-yard TD run.
