Victory was within reach last week, but Mansfield ultimately lost 19 – 12 to Paris. The team got a solid performance out of sophomore Ethan Stovall (he threw for 235 yards and two touchdowns); unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough for the win. Meanwhile, Lamar suffered a painful 33 – 11 defeat to Atkins last week.
The last time they met, Lamar was the decided 49 – 14 victor. This time, their match is expected to be much closer since they have similar state rankings (Mansfield at 164th, Lamar at 157th). Will Mansfield avenge its loss? We’ll find out soon enough.
GO BIG RED! BEAT LAMAR!!!!
