Lake City Middle School had a tough night on the football field Thursday.
The Lakers came up on the short end of a 44-0 decision against Jacksboro.
Lake City Coach Brandon Duncan said that he knew that his team was up for a tough test, but noted that he was hoping for better results.
“We took a step back,” Duncan said. “We knew that it was going to be tough, because they’re a high-flying team.
“I was hoping for a little more intensity, but it just wasn’t our day.”
The Lakers return to action Thursday when they play Cumberland Gap in another game that will present a stiff challenge.
“It’ll be another tough one,” Duncan said.
Lake City will also play Tuesday against Huntsville before closing out the regular season against Jellico in a game on Oct. 3. That game was rescheduled after being postponed in August.
