Lions Finish 1-2 in Lampasas 7-on-7 Tournament

The Brownwood Lions opened the Lampasas portion of the Burnet 7-on-7 Division II state qualifier Saturday with a shutout victory, but as the weather conditions deteriorated so did the Lions’ hopes of advancing out of pool play.

After a 26-0 win over Lake Belton, the Lions dropped a 20-19 decision to Lampasas followed by a 27-6 defeat at the hands of District 5-4A Division I rival Midlothian Heritage. As Saturday’s schedule progressed, a steady rain gradually developed into a torrential downpour as Brownwood finished with a 1-2 record for the second consecutive weekend.

The Lions will take their third crack at making their 21st straight appearance in the 7-on-7 state tournament next Saturday as they take part in the Midlothian Heritage qualifier.
