Missed offensive opportunities have proven costly to Lee Academy as the team has scored a combined six points in the first two weeks.
The Lee Colts (0-2) fell at Bayou Academy (1-1) Friday night 7-0.
“I thought our guys played really hard,” said Lee coach Rick Johnston. “We limited them to seven points defensively. We have to eliminate some mistakes. Somebody has to make a play and just fall in the end zone. We had many opportunities.
“Offense, we’ve had our opportunities. We just haven’t been able to get in the end zone yet. We’re going to, hopefully, get that six by Friday night. On both sides of the ball, we’re playing hard.”
Senior running back and linebacker Seth Campbell, junior lineman Andrew Williamson, senior wide receiver and defensive back Brett Wilson and junior running back and linebacker Graydon Gullick were the defensive leaders for the Lee Colts.
Gullick had an interception and the team collected two fumble recoveries.
The Lee Colts are back home against Strayhorn (2-0) at 7 p.m. Friday. The Mustangs are coming off of a 20-14 home win against Coffeeville.
“Hopefully, this week, when we have those opportunities, we capitalize on them,” Johnston said.
Johnston said he hopes his team continues to play the way it has on defense.
Attitude has not been a problem the first two weeks.
“I’m just pleased with the way with the effort, the attitude and the heart our guys are playing with,” Johnston said. “I’m very pleased with the attitude up to this point.”
