LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — After an outstanding 4-0 start, the Moore County Middle School football team ran into trouble last week in the form of the Fayetteville City Tigers.
The Tigers visited Lynchburg last Tuesday and left with a 24-0 Duck River Valley Conference (DRVC) victory. The game was moved up two days from Thursday due to parent/teacher conferences in Moore County.
Just five days removed from a sluggish performance at Westwood, the Raiders never got on track against Fayetteville. Offensively, the Tigers imposed their will on the ground and defensively they managed to keep the high-scoring MCMS offense out of the end zone.
Moore County backs Dylan Scruggs and Tyler Smith had a rough night as neither managed to get going offensively.
The loss puts Moore County (4-1) in regroup mode as the Raiders focus on this week’s game at Cascade. The Raiders need to win their remaining three contests — at Cascade and at home against Middle Tennessee Christian School and Forrest — to have a shot at playing in the season-ending DRVC Championship game.
After traveling to Cascade this Thursday, the Raiders will be at home on Sept. 29 and Oct. 6 for their final two regular-season contests.
