In a battle of unbeaten middle school football teams, Lamar County and Clifton Ridge met at Trojan Field last week in what many thought might be a contest down to the wire.
Somebody forgot to tell LCMS. They dismantled the visitors from Gray 52-12 to assure themselves a spot in post-season play.
The Trojans erased any doubt early on as Lance Austin returned the opening kickoff 75 yards, untouched, for a touchdown. Miquavius Searcy added the two-point PAT and LCMS led 8-0 14 seconds into the game.
