Lawrence Co. Head Coach Heath Webb
“… What a game. We knew coming into this game that it would be a battle. Both teams came out to play but we wanted it a little bit more than they did. Proud is an understatement for my feelings for this team. A lot of people didn’t think we could get back to the championship game. We are looking forward to defending our region championship on our home field on Wednesday at 6:30.”
“… Ally Moore and the entire defense came up huge in the victory.”
