Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… Very proud of our kids for taking care of business two nights in a row. Big district win over Prestonsburg Friday night and the ability to regain focus and beat a good Phelps team tonight was great for our team. We had a good week of practice and knew going into this weekend that we would be playing two teams with similar styles of play. We were able to focus on one game plan all week and execute it two nights in a row. I’m proud of our kids focus on that end of it.”
“ Big week this week with 3 games at home. Play a very hot Lewis Co. team on Tuesday. We will watch some film tomorrow and get back to work Monday! Hope to see a lot of people in the Dawg Pound Tuesday night!”
