Trojans falter late, lose 36-21

The #6 Lamar County Trojans faltered late and lost 36-21 to Macon County Friday night in Montezuma. MaCo is the Region 4AA champ. LC is runner up. The game turned halfway through the final quarter when LC gave up a long kick return and subsequent TD. The Trojans fumbled the ensuing kickoff, setting themselves up for the kill. Dog star Roquan Smith was glad to oblige as he owned the last six minutes of the contest. Lamar will host Swainsboro (5-5) in the first round of the playoffs and MaCo will host Dublin 6-4. Barring a huge upset, the second round will see match ups with powerhouses GAC or Lovett for both Lamar and MaCo. Realtime scoring from Friday’s game was provided by Walter Geiger.
