Lamar Consolidated Mustangs (0-6) at Lake Creek Lions (5-2)
Friday, November 13, 2020 — 7 p.m. — Montgomery ISD Stadium
The road has not been easy for Lamar Consolidated. A tough non-district slate gave way to an even-tougher start to District 10-5A DII play.
The path doesn’t get any easier on Thursday with a trip to Montgomery ISD Stadium and a game against the Lake Creek Lions.
While there hasn’t been a win yet for Lamar Consolidated, the Mustangs still have plenty to play for down the stretch.
Head coach Kiah Johnson’s squad has lost to Huntsville and A&M Consolidated, two state-ranked teams in the district.
The remaining four games on the Mustangs’ schedule are against teams with records over .500, but they are not reaching the level of the two top teams (Huntsville and A&M Consolidated) in the district that have a combined record of 12-1.
Lamar Consolidated will have to slow down the No. 1 offense in District 10-5A DII on Thursday night.
Lake Creek comes in averaging 485 yards per game, and the Lions are nearly balanced with an average of 200 yards rushing and passing in each contest.
One focal point to stop will be junior running back Justin Freeney. The Lion has collected 1,006 and 12 touchdowns on 165 carries.
Freeney will help keep the Lions on track a week after Lake Creek had split quarterback play between the regular senior Ty Sexton and sophomore Cade Tessier.
No word if Sexton was injured in the Lions’ loss to A&M Consolidated last week. But if he is out, the Lions will be without the No.4 passer in 10-5A DII.
Sexton has thrown for 1,411 yards and 10 touchdowns against five interceptions.
Lamar Consolidated will seek to improve their offensive output currently ranked last in 10-5A DII, averaging 238 yards per game.
Junior quarterback Dylan Garrett was able to show some flashes last week against a stout Huntsville defense; he is averaging 163 passing yards per game.
The Mustangs offense will face the No. 4 defense in District 10-5A DII on Thursday. Lake Creek allows 270 yards per contest while allowing the second-most total passing yards (1,091).
