COLUMBIA — Lewisville found itself in somewhat of a state of shock when the Eau Claire Shamrocks went 74 yards in six plays to claim a six-point lead in the first quarter.
However, the Lions were more than able to regroup by reeling off 38 unanswered points in a 38-12 nonregion victory at Bolden Stadium on Friday.
Quarterback Cody Montgomery threw for 205 yards with 20 completions and Dre Bailey rushed for three scores to highlight the Lions, who improved to 4-2 overall.
We played much better this week; last week in our loss to Buford, we did not come out with intensity and were not prepared to play, Lewisville coach Will Mitchell said. Tonight, it was much better. We seem to be involved in close games; so tonight, it was good to get this type of victory.
The Shamrocks, who celebrated homecoming, remain winless at 0-5.
