Lions Roll Up Over 500 Yards of Offense In Big Win Over PanthersClint DavisLIVINGSTON, September 12, 2009 - On the third play from scrimmage Lion quarterback Blake Burman connected with talented wide out Cassity Land for 42 yard score and the Lions never looked back.
Coach Rowe then unleashed the lethal combination of KeKe Johnson and Quinton Jackson to pile up over 500 yards of total offense on the way to a 63-20 victory over the Caney Creek Panthers.
Jackson had over 150 yards on the ground by halftime as the Lions headed to the locker room with 28-14 lead but had lost a little momentum after a Panther touchdown just before the half.
Caney Creek came out strong in the second half and at the 7:06 mark of the third quarter punched it in for the score a failed two point conversion attempt made the count 28-20.
The Livingston Lion defense clamped down not allowing a Panther score the rest of the way and the offense went on to score 35 unanswered points to seal the win.
The Lion defense was led by Wyatt,Galloway,Elster,Wright,McClain,Johnson,White,and Greg Johnson.
Coach Rowe commented after the game that he felt the young Lions had grown up Friday night and it's a good thing too because it takes grown men to compete in the tough 20-4A district.
The Lions will travel to Houston next Saturday night to battle Booker T. Washington in one last tune up before the district schedule begins.
