SUFFERING THE LACK OF PRACTICE TIME DUE TO A QUARTER FINAL APPEARANCE IN THE CLASS 1 SOCCER PLAYOFFS, THE LAQUEY HORNETS ARE STILL TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER SOME CONSISTANCY..

ONE OF COACH DUSTIN MATLOCKS GOALS AFTER THEIR FIRST GAME WAS TO HAVE MORE POINTS THAN TURNOVERS, AND WHILE THAT WAS ATTAINED LAST NIGHT, THE 2ND SEED IBERIA RANGERS WERE TOO LONG, TOO FAST, AND TOO GOOD IN A 63-30 RANGER WIN……THE RANGERS CRUISED TO A 26-8 FIRST QUARTER LEAD AND DIDN’T LOOK BACK…..11 PLAYERS PUT UP POINTS FOR THE RANGERS LED BY EASTON BLANKENSHIP AND ZACH VOSS WITH 11 EACH…COACH NICK VOSS SAID EASTON GOT THIS TRAIN ROLLIN’ IN THE FIRST QUARTER WITH 3 STRAIGHT TRAY’S.
