Lavaca had 4 teams in play tonight; LHS Lady Arrow Volleyball, LJH Lady Volleyball, 7th grade Football, and LJH Football teams. It was a rough night for the Arrows as all 4 teams came up short.
Both Lady Arrow team played at home against a good Hackett team.  Jr Ladies lost in straight sets and the high school team lost 3-1.  The  LHS Ladies move to 4-1 in conference. Both teams will travel to Decatur on Tuesday and look to get back to their winning ways.
Both 7th grade and the Jr Arrows took it on the chin tonight against a very physical Mansfield Tiger team. The 7th grade game looked to going all Lavaca’s way at the start.  Mansfield received the ball first.  On the 2nd play of the game Andrew Johnson, number 11, intersected a Mansfield pass and the Arrows were in business.  Arrows drove the field and had 1st and goal but couldn’t punch it in turning ball over on downs.  This was a hard fought game.  The Arrows moved the ball well but in the end came up short falling 14-0.
The Junior High game started with a long sustained drive by Mansfield which ended in a touchdown.  The next two possessions go 3 and out and then Mansfield rattles off a 44 yard touchdown run. Arrow’s find themselves down 16-0.  But the Arrows would fight back.  Moving the ball down the field on a 44 yard run by Maddox Noel, number 1, only to have the drive stall when Lavaca fumbled on the 1 yard line.  Mansfield forced to punt from inside  own 20. Lavaca finally gets on the board on a 6 yard run set up by a 16 yard pass play from Number 3 Cazen Winters. Lavaca tacked on one more touchdown in the forth quarter. Final score was 38-12.   Up next is Two Rivers next Thursday at home.
LHS Golden Arrows will take on Mansfield tomorrow night at home.  Come out and support all of our Arrow teams!
As Always,
Go Arrows!!
Arrow Pride!
