RAYVILLE — The Panthers proved they’re competitive, but unfortunately, Lincoln Preparatory School fell in a pair of 15-minute games at the Rayville Jamboree.
Lincoln Prep was downedl 8-6 by Lincoln Parish rival Cedar Creek in the opening stanza/game.
“It was nip and tuck, pretty much,” said Lincolne Prep coach Glen Hall. “They threw an out and my guy (Chauncy Harper) picked it off and ran for a touchdown. “It was about 65 yards. We missed that PAT and pretty much we held them in check. They didn’t get a lot of long runs … they won by a two-point conversion with about 2:30 left.”’
Hall admitted fatigue and miscues paid a late price in the opener.
“We had a chance to win in the end and we ran out of time. It’s something we have to learn from,” Hall said.
In the nightcap, the Panthers were stung by the Hornets 20- 6.
“We were tied 6-6 with 3:00 left,” Hall said. “ They scored up and went 14-6 and then picked a ball off later.
“They didn’t just beat us. They made a lot of plays. I just have to get my team in better condition”
Lincoln Prep opens the 2021 season at home on Friday against Beekman-Charter at Eddie G. Robinson Stadium.
