Falcons claim Mountain 7 title with win over Lee

It was another rain soaked field for the second week in a row.  It was senior night and these seniors wouldn’t have it any other way.  The Lee High Generals were in town for a showdown with the Falcons who were riding high after knocking off district foes Ridgeview and Union in back-to-back weeks.

After all the pleasantries and circumstance, the Falcons took the field and picked up right where they left off the week before–playing hard nosed defense and denying their opponents offensive production.  Abingdon limited the Generals to just 24 yards of total offense on the night.  The Falcons backfield of Sean Canada had 19 carries for 168 yards while Martin Lucas had 15 carries for 111 yards and combined for four scores.

The Abingdon defense played lights out in shutting down the Generals led by Ethan Roark up front with with 10 only allowing 28 yards rushing.  The lone bright spot for the Generals (2-8 0-6) came from Blake Lewis on a punt return for a touchdown.
