Lex starts district grid play

Kickoff in Tishomingo set for 7:30 p.m.


Lexington’s Bulldogs will travel to Tishomingo Friday night for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff with the Indians in the first game of the second season.

Lex’s game with Tish is the first game of district play. Lexington comes into the contest at 1-2 while Tish is 2-1.

The Indians are coached by former Purcell Dragon Head Coach Scott O’Hara and operate out of the spread on offense. They base out of a 3-4 on defense, according to Bulldogs Head Coach Keith Bolles.

After a season opening 6-0 loss at the hands of Dickson, Tish has reeled off two straight victories, 22-19 over Wynnewood and 24-6 over ECP.

“I told the kids that the first three games of the season are just games to get you ready for district play,” head coach Keith Bolles said.

“This is where it begins for the goal they had at the first of the year,” Bolles continued.

Bolles said last Friday night’s loss at Purcell will “hopefully be a learning tool for us.”

“Everybody could have done better,” the coach said of the loss at Purcell.

“There is work to do,” he said looking ahead to Friday night’s game at Tish.

The coach praised the play of sophomore Cameron Weatherford in the Purcell contest.

“Tishomingo has some big old linemen and their quarterback throws pretty well.

“Their running back runs pretty hard,” Bolles continued. It looks like they work with a cover four in the back end.

“What we have to do is get better at what we do,” he concluded.
