Gators best Lions 40-0

It may sound like a cliche’ but it’s a true statement tonight, The score doesn’t reflect the level of competition in the game tonight. The Foreman Gators escaped Mount Ida with a 40-0 victory over Mount Ida, but the Lions showed a lot of improvement on defense holding Foreman to under 200 yards offense.

Foreman jumped out to an early 8-0 lead, but the Lions tightened their belts defensively to hold the Gators to a 16-0 halftime lead.

The Foreman offense scored one touchdown in the third quarter and another in the fourth to take a 32 point second half lead. The final points came on a punt returned for a touchdown.

Mount Ida drops to 1-6 on the season and will host Dierks next Friday in a must win situation if they want any chance at earning a play off spot this year.

See next week’s issue of the Montgomery County News for a complete recap of the game.
