Trojans not sharp but still pound Pirates 30-8

The #7 Lamar County Trojans (1-1) went through long periods of struggle Friday night but still managed to pummel the Pike County Pirates 30-8 in the annual Battle of Potato Creek. The game, worked by a struggling offiicating crew that never really took command of the game, may have been the longest regulation time contest in high school football history as it ran two hours and 49 minutes. It seemed there was a flag thrown on every play in the second half. The dislike for each other among the combatants was obvious from the start. There were fisticuffs, borderline hits, one ejection and several instances of players taunting fans. Though the outcome was never really in doubt, LC could never really put the Pirates in their place which does not bode well as the season progresses. Lamar has next week off then must battle the Mary Persons Bulldogs who required two overtime periods to dispatch the Jackson Red Devils 28-21 in Forsyth Friday night. That game will be the home opener at Trojan Field. Realtime scoring from the game was provided by Walter Geiger on the sidelines. End 1st qtr.: LC 0 PC 0 10:28 2nd qtr.: LC 7 PC 0: Juan Tucker 6-yd.
