The Lee-Scott Academy Warriors fell to Pike Liberal Arts last Friday 56-0 in a tough game all around. The Warriors were not able to stop the offensive juggernaut Pike Liberal Arts brought to the game and all offensive attempts were stymied.    

“We were really outmanned, said Lee-Scott head coach Buster Daniel. "I did see improvement from a lot of our guys on both sides of the ball, but sometimes you are just outmanned.”

The bright spot of the game has been the continued effort of quarterback Tate Mckelvey.

“He’s a tremendous leader,” said Daniel. 

The Warriors are now 0-3 but still remain third in Region 1. They will look to turn their season around next week as they take on undefeated Macon-East Academy. Lee-Scott has won three in a row in the series, the most recent matchup being a 48-14 win in 2013. The Warriors are tied with Macon-East in overall matchups at seven apiece.   

“Their record speaks for itself,” said Daniel. “They won’t be as athletic as our first three games, but we are certainly not taking them lightly” 

Coach Daniel spoke very highly of his special teams, in particular his two punters John Allers and Matthew Rollader. 

“We have done a great job on special teams, especially on punting," he said. "We have to get our offensive and defensive units going.”

Looking forward to next week, the Warriors are confident they can right the ship.

“We are going back to work and taking this one game at a time,” said Daniel.

The game will be played on Knight Field, the last of Lee-Scott’s three-straight away games. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
