VERNON, Ala. – After dropping their region opener against Sulligent last week, the Cold Springs Eagles hit the road for another big regional matchup Thursday night. The Eagles traveled to take on Lamar County and after falling behind early, Cold Springs was able to rally and cut into the Bulldogs lead late in the fourth quarter. However, it was too little, too late for the Eagles and they dropped Thursday’s regional battle at Lamar County 38-28.

The Eagles took an early lead over Lamar County thanks to a touchdown run by Hank Harrison, but the Bulldogs responded and took control of the game as the first half went on. Lamar County pulled ahead 12-6 by the end of the opening quarter and stretched the lead to 32-6 going into the halftime break.

The Bulldogs added to their lead early in the second half to make it a 38-6 game, but the ensuing kickoff was returned all the way for a Cold Springs touchdown by Dylan Smith to cut the lead to 38-12 with just over eight minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Eagles continued to chip away in the second half. A Josh Winfrey touchdown made it a 38-20 game and Smith found the end zone again for Cold Springs to trim the lead to 38-28 in the final minutes of the game, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Lamar County lead and the Eagles fell on the road 38-28.

Cold Springs falls to 2-2 with the loss and the Eagles will be back home next week for a battle against Locust Fork.
