The Lee County Yellow Jackets improved to 6-0 on the season beating Anson 32-25 in a game that started Friday night and resumed tonight (Mon) at 6:00 with just over 4 minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter.  The game re-start began with Anson leading 13-7 and 3rd and goal at the Lee County two-yard line.  The Bearcats scored on the 1st play to take a 19-7 lead.  

That’s when Lee County went to work.   First, a 4-play drive that covered 61 yards in :45 seconds and AJ Boulware scoring from 24 yards out with 3:09 in the 3rd quarter.    Next after holding Anson to a quick three-and-out, Lee County tackled the punter before he could get a kick away at the Anson two and Boulware punched it in from 1 yard out to give Lee County its first lead at 20-19.   On the 2nd play of Anson’s next possession, Larry Baldwin picked off a Bearcat pass at the Anson 43 and returned to the 30-yard line.  Lee scored in 3 plays with Colin Johnson finding a wide-open Timmy Lett in the right corner of the end zone with 11:13 left in the 4th quarter.      Johnson was 9 of 10 in the 2nd half passing for 96 yards.  

Lee County finished the non-conference portion of its schedule at 6-0.   The Yellow Jackets are off this Friday night and play next on the road at Triton on Oct 11th.
