Coach Bob Shipley said at the end of the game that the defense kept playing hard throughout the game, but the offense was off rhythm and didnt seem focused.
Shipley told the players after the game that next week was serious business. Next week, the Lions face Abilene Wylie at home in the first district game of the season.
