It was a rough night for the Arrows last night against Mountainburg. Lavaca was held to 98 yards rushing while the Dragons rushed for 390 yards. Lavaca took the loss with a score of 29-8. Tyler Armistead had Lavaca’s only score on a 23 yard touchdown run around the end. Mason Walters got the 2 point conversion on a direct snap.

Defense played hard all night and although Mountainburg had a total of 454 yards, Lavaca’s defense was able to hold them to a season low 29 points. Tyler Hobbs had an interception to end one drive.
Arrows defense really bowed up in the second half holding the Dragons to only 9 points.
Offensively, Lavaca battled all night but struggled to get the ground game going. Lavaca fought field position all night with two of the possessions starting at their own 10. Lavaca did find some success moving the ball in the air, but couldn’t get out of their own way. Penalties came at the most inconvenient times for Lavaca. Mason Walters caught 5 passes for 64 yards and Jimmy Hall threw the ball for 130 yards on 11 completions.

Coach Schlinker said “I’m very proud of our kids. They played hard from start to finish”
Lavaca will look to bounce back next Friday, October 5th, on the road against Western Yell County.
As Always,
Go Arrows!
Arrow Pride!
