Lions Kept it Close, Then Lost Control, LIVINGSTON, October 5, 2013 - The Livingston Lions varsity football team played the Nederalnd Bulldogs on Friday night and came away with the second consecutive district game loss. In the first district game of the season against Little Cypress Mauriceville, the Lions kept it close to the very end and succumbed to their own mistakes. In last night's game, they kept in close until about midway through the third quarter, then Nederland steadily took control of the game and would leave Livingston as happy campers winning 24 to 0.
3:06 Nederland makes a short touchdown run: Bulldogs 7, Lions 0
0.42 1 yard td run by Nederland: Bulldogs 14, Lions 0
6:21 Nederland makes a 40 yard TD pass: Bulldogs 21, Lions 0
0.20 Nederland kicks a field goal: FINAL: BULLDOGS 24, LIONS 0
This is just one of those games where the Lions were way outplayed by a team with more experience. The young Lions (even young by high school standards) will get better, but they're having to go through a major learning curve that can only be taught with experience and growth under the Friday night lights.
Next Opponent, Beaumont Ozen in Beaumont.
Meanwhile, the Undefeated Corrigan Bulldogs are rolling. They knocked off Center last night in Corrigan 35 to 33.

Senior Miguel Rodriguez (43) is one of the Lions' best defensive players and is a good leader on the field.
