COMO — The visiting Leonard Tigers took an early lead and cruised to a 66-0 win over Como-Pickton, putting a damper on homecoming activities at Ron Heflin Field.
It was the fourth game of the year where the Eagles were held off the scoreboard.
Como-Pickton had 94 yards of total offense, coming from 55 rushing and 39 passing.
Top ground gainer was Luis Lopez with three carries for 26 yards. Zach Robinson had 19 yards from six carries. Cody Fite ran seven times for nine yards. Christian Hill had 13 carries for a yard. Cole Mitchell had one tote for no gain.
At quarterback, Fite completed five of 11 passes for 39 yards, one interception.
Lopez snagged two passes for 17 yards. Dantae Hall had one reception for 15 yards and Blake Neal caught two for seven yards.
“I know the score doesn’t seem like it, but our team is playing better every game,” said Conley Bland, Como-Pickton head football coach. “The problem is that we have around 27 players who are in grades 9, 10, or 11, but they are the guys who are willing to work hard to improve as football players. Around 22 of our players are freshmen and sophomores and I don’t say that as an excuse, it’s just a fact. Our seniors are to be commended for there efforts this year, also. We are experiencing some tough games, but I believe that one day it will turn around for our guys.”
Bland added, “We are open this next week and we will use it to get better, by emphasizing fundamentals, and not in preparation for the next opponent.”
