Lavaca players all played hard tonight and have nothing to be ashamed of. Coach Schlinker had this to say after the game, “I’m extremely proud of our effort. Never quit.felt like we were in it til the last tick. Very impressed with our effort on defense. We were extremely physical. Special teams hurt us, things we can fix though. Offense clicked at times, just couldn’t get in rhythm.”
Lavaca will be at home next Friday at 7:00pm against the Tigers from Mansfield.
As always, Go Arrows!
