Lassiter Uses Big 1st Quarter, Defense to Crush Osborne 16-3

By Aiden Mihill

MARIETTA – Lassiter scored 13 points in the first quarter and forced 3 turnovers to go along with 5 sacks, as the Trojans beat the Cardinals of Osborne 16-3 on Friday night. Lassiter’s Bryson Harrison went 12 of 18 for 140 yards and 2 scores through the air, both in the first quarter. The defense was stringent all night, forcing 7 tackles for loss against a Cardinals team that has struggled offensively all season, scoring just 30 points in their last 5 games. The Osborne defense played well, forcing 2 fumbles and getting both back. They held Lassiter to under 250 yards, which no team has been able to do to the high-powered Trojan offense other than Kennesaw Mountain (who won 51-7). The Cardinals could never muster the offensive momentum to score, giving the usually struggling Lassiter defense a good reprieve from high-scoring shootouts.. The Trojans, now 4-4 and at .500 for the first time this season, have a bye this week before taking on the Allatoona Bucs in Acworth in what should be a good game for 3rd in the region standings. Osborne falls to 1-5 on the year (0-5 in region play) and goes at South Cobb this Friday.
