SIBLEY— The Lakeside Warriors dropped to 3-3 on the season after a 40-13 loss at home to Sterlington Friday night.
The Warriors were coming off a mistake-filled 12-7 loss to Arcadia and were hoping to eliminate those mistakes against the Panthers. But it didn't turn out that way.
"A good portion of what happened last week, continued on," Lakeside head coach Terrence Quarles said. "We just didn't execute properly. We had several opportunities to do well, but we were only able to capitalize on a couple of those."
A couple of injuries played a big part in the loss as well. Starting quarterback Cody Poe and runner/receiver Chris Lewis both were hobbled in the game.
"Our quarterback went down and we had to move Jerrell Tellis there," Quarles said. "And Chris Lewis had a pulled muscle in his leg. The combination of those two injuries hurt us and we couldn't quite get the offense going."
Tellis played well, scoring both of the Warriors' touchdowns.
"Sterlington is a very solid team," Quarles said. "They have a lot of playoff experience and they did a pretty good job against us. We just didn't capitalize in all areas of the game and came up short."
Lakeside will regroup and travel to Jonesboro-Hodge this Friday night.
"We just have to move on and strive for higher heights," Quarles said. "We have to look at the film and isolate our mistakes and get ready for Jonesboro-Hodge this Friday night. We'll be ready."
