The Lee-Scott football team put together a dominating 42-0 performance in the second game in two weeks against Pike Liberal Arts last Friday.
LSA head coach Robert Maddox said he saw his team play a complete game.
"I’m just real proud of the effort, the fact that we were able to start the game strong and finish strong," he said. "That’s the thing we have not done in our four losses. We were able to do that Friday night against a good football team."
The Warriors will look to repeat that effort in a rematch against Bessemer in the second round of the playoffs on Friday.
The Rebels edged out LSA 18-17 in early October.
The Warriors aren't going to throw in a new wrinkle or any smoke and mirrors on offense, though.
"There are no secrets with us," Maddox said. "We’re going to run power to the right, power to the left, some ISO. We’re going to run it outside every now and then. Occasionally, if you dictate your defense so, we’re going to throw it. We’re not complicated at all."
Bessemer (11-1) has been dominant all year on both sides of the ball, with the only loss coming against undefeated Autauga Academy.
"They’re a fine football team, well coached, and they’re very athletic, so we’ll have our hands full," Maddox said. "They have the best linebacking corps in our league by far. I don’t think anything’s close.
"They have the athletic edge, and we know that. There’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve just got to execute."
