HS FOOTBALL: Robinson & Turnovers Lead Lee Over Jones County

Lee County’s defense stood strong with recovering three turnovers while running back Mark Robinson rushed for 157 yards en route to a 20-13 victory over Jones County on Thursday night. Akilies Leroy made his impact with eight tackles and a fumble recovery while the Lee defense did not waiver the entire game.
 
As in many high school games, that passing game was a dubious proposition at best. Both teams saw steady success on the ground with Lee taking a larger advantage. It was a big night on the road for Lee, the soon to be named “road warriors” as the team grinded through adversity and an overall very tough push back from Jones County. A tip of the hat goes to the coaches of both teams who managed the roosters and the game clock in grand fashion.
 
The game was a battle of wills that Lee came out on top of. The teams traded a pair of field goals each on the offensive side while Lee scored the eventual game winning touchdown on a five yard rush from senior running back Mark Robinson. The rest of the season looks bright for Lee – especially if they continue playing their hard nosed style defense like they most certainly did to start the 2016 season.
