McDONOUGH — It was far from a perfect game, but Loganville Christian Academy notched a 20-7 win over region opponent Creekside Christian Academy to even its overall record to 1-1.
Head coach Andre King said to his troops after the game, “The sign of a good team, who can be great, is they can play a sloppy game and still win.”
The sloppiness came in the form of costly penalties that negated several long plays, two of which would have been scores.
“We hurt ourselves offensively and those mistakes can come back to bite you,” King said. “Physical errors are fixable. It’s the mental errors that are harder to address.”
Cameron Livsey, who missed last week’s losing effort to Bethlehem Christian, showed up to play and accounted for all three Lions scores, carrying the ball 11 times for 67 yards. Livsey scored in the first, third and fourth quarters.
Other Lions standouts were Keon McGhee, who carried 12 times for 51 yards; Cameron Anderson, who connected on half his 16 passes for 88 yards; and Dana Lucas Jr., his favorite target, who caught four passes for 30 yards.
LCA returns to the friendly confines of Hawkins Field next week with their first home game, playing host to Flint River Academy.
