LEESBURG — Lee County fans waited four weeks into the season for their first home football game.
After two quarters of domination against outmanned Luella on Friday at Trojan Field, many of the die-hard fans began to think about hitting the exits.
The Trojans scored six first-half touchdowns, took a commanding 42-point lead at halftime and rolled to an easy 49-0 victory to stay unbeaten at 4-0.
Lee’s defense intercepted two passes, recovered a fumble and made it look easy for the offense. Meanwhile, quarterback Jase Orndorff threw two long touchdown passes to Tyquavious Terrell and another to Terrian Wester, Mark Robinson scored on two touchdown plunges and Giovante Daniels added a touchdown gallop.
The Trojans, who played their first two games on the road, had their opener against Hardaway postponed by Hurricane Hermine two weeks ago.
A two-week wait was worth it as fans were treated to a feel-good victory where many players saw action and everyone, except Luella, went home happy. The Trojans even sported their new gray uniforms with red numbers, much to the delight of the home crowd.
Lee County completely dominated, not allowing the Lions to cross midfield during the first half.
Luella crossed into midfield on its opening drive of the second half, but the drive stalled at the Lee County 33-yard line.
The final two quarters were played under a running clock.
Kareen Wilson scored on a 5-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
Friday night’s game was the first of two straight at home. The Trojans play host to Thomas County Central next week to round out their nonregion schedule. Then they are off on Sept. 30 before playing host to top-ranked Houston County to open the Region 1-AAAAAA schedule the first weekend in October.
