Mighty Lions run down Red Raiders 29-7
The level of excitement was high for players and fans last Friday night when the Rosa Fort Lions hosted the Red Raiders of Shannon, MS for the opening round of the MHSAA 4A State Championship football playoffs.
The Lions ended their stellar regular season with just one blemish at 9-1. With a perfect 5-0 Region 2 North Division record and five straight wins in the Lions Den, the Pride’s offense was confident, yet guarded.
Hobbled with key offensive player and MSU committee Brandon Bryant sitting out due to an ankle injury suffered during their final regular season game against Senatobia, coaches hoped to see a full team effort.
Rosa Fort took the opening kickoff after Shannon deferred, but the offense struggled on their first possession, to go three and out and punt.
