Lions never quit in loss to Crane

Article Image Alt Text

The scoreboard told one story, but the players on the field told another Friday night as the Ozona Lions lost to #10 Crane, 50-39.

Despite the loss, the Lions never quit giving Crane a tough game and preparing the Lions for upcoming district play.

“It was a very close game, as we expected. The game hinged on four key plays on the night. The turnover ratio fell in their favor, and when two evenly matched teams face off that is a big deal,” said Athletic Director and Head Coach Kyle Freeman. “The offense had a good night overall.”
