At no time in the game did any of the Lions slack off. They had some bad breaks and some penalties that cost them yardage and position, but they shook it off and played every play like it was the first play of the game. The Lions are a young team with only three seniors, the Falcons had six. The Falcons had only allowed a total of 101 points scored against them in 12 games. Their strong defense and evident rapt attention to the game films of the Lions made them a formidable opponent.
The Lions are in only their second year of competition. For them to have gone through three rounds of playoffs this year is quite an achievement. Look for them to do even better next year, they are losing three seniors and gaining eight freshmen who gained experience this year on the junior high team. The coaches will be continuing their education as they make the transition from 11-man to six man football.
