After limiting another opponent to one touchdown or less, the Pineville Mountain Lions improved to 6-1 on the season after defeating the Lynn Camp Wildcats 14-6 at home. The victory marked the third time of the season that Pineville had limited their opponent to single digit points.

Colby Frazier led the way for Pineville with 198 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown and a two-point conversion. Devon “Scooby” Morris added six for the Lions with 10 rushes for 88 yards and a touchdown.

The Pineville defense had two takeaways on the evening with interceptions from Morris and Braiden “Boog” Lingar. Morris added four tackles, Frazier had six, Keaton Thompson had five, Timothy Gambrel had four and Derrick Brock added four.

After trailing most of the game 0-6, Pineville was able to add a touchdown and 2-point conversion midway throughout the third quarter to take a permanent lead at 8-6. The Lions were able to add six more points late in the final frame of action to secure their sixth victory of the season.

“These guys just don’t quit,” said Pineville coach Randy Frazier. “Even when they are wore out, they still come at you with all they’ve got. They’re a group of very coachable guys. They’re all team players too. I’m proud of the way we are playing at this point in the season. That was a good team that we beat in Lynn Camp, so that shows me that we are still doing the right things and we are still getting better.”

Throughout the season, Pineville has won every game that they have allowed fewer than 20 points. Frazier believes that his defense’s work ethic is to credit.

“Our defense has done a great job all season of doing what they’re supposed to do. They work very hard every single week and I think it shows. We have some playmakers on the defensive side of the ball just as well as we do on offense. I’m very proud of our guys this season and hopefully we can keep it up as the season begins to draw to a close. We are going to continue to work hard a get better each week.”

Facing off against a 5-2 Williamsburg team this week, Frazier believes that his team will be ready.

“We are going to see some things out of Williamsburg that we haven’t seen so far this season. They have a superb offense and they throw the ball all over the place. We are just going to focus on limiting them as much as we can. We aren’t looking ahead to any other games, or looking back at any other games. We are focused on Williamsburg. We are going to have to play a very good game because they are a very good team.”

With the victory, Pineville moved to 6-1 on the season. The Lions square off against the Williamsburg Yellow Jackets on the road Friday.
