The Ozona Lions scrambled and clawed their way to their second district win, 31-24, over Forsan Friday night at Lion Stadium.

The Lions would struggle with turnovers and mistakes throughout the game, but managed to pull out the win.

“It’s always good to get the win. We did not play well though on either side of the ball. Too many mistakes and turnovers. Despite the turnovers we did move the ball well at times and there were some bright spots,” said Athletic Director and Head Coach Kyle Freeman.

The Lions (6-2, 2-0 in district) rushed for 124 yards and passed for 256 yards for 380 yards total on the night with five turnovers.

Quarterback Alec Lara passed for 256 yards and four touchdown passes. He completed 12 passes on 17 attempts with three interceptions.

Sheriff, commissioners questioned about recent vehicle burglaries at Lion Stadium

A local citizen addressed Crockett County Sheriff Robert Rodriguez and the Crockett County Commissioners’ Court about vehicles recently burglarized at Lion Stadium during a home football game.

Ira Childress spoke the court during Monday’s regular meeting. He said his vehicle was one of the ones broken into, along with other vehicles from Ozona and Crane.

Childress asked if additional lighting to be added to the west side of the parking lot at the stadium and that if a sheriff’s deputy could be over at the parking lot during the game.

“There’s a lot of people not happy about the whole situation because we haven’t seen any results yet and it’s time to see some results. I just want some lighting over there. At least a camera or something to see. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I got robbed,” Childress said.

Lions make statement comeback in district win over Stamford

Lions make statement comeback in district win over Stamford

STAMFORD – The Ozona Lions were determined to come away with a victory Friday night. Coming behind from a 14-point deficit, the Lions outshined the Bulldogs, 39-28, for their first district win.

“Another good win for the team. We believe it puts us in the driver’s seat as far as district play. It’s always good to go on the road against a program like Stamford and come back with a win,” said Athletic Director and Head Coach Kyle Freeman.

The Lions struggled in the first half with the Bulldogs taking a 14-0 lead in the second quarter, with the second Stamford touchdown coming off an Ozona fumble.

The Lions would get on the board on a five yard touchdown run by Abraham Rodriguez on their next series of plays. Lane Smith’s extra-point kick was good to make it 14-7.

Stamford would score again on their next possession making their lead 22-7.
