Battle @ Lee

This is most likely a must win for Battle with Union looming in week 11. If Battle loses this one they better hope Grayson doesn't win another game or Richlands wins out.

Both teams are 5-3 overall... with 4 common opponents… Lebanon, Central, Gate City and Ridgeview

 

Against common opponents, Battle has scored 166 points vs Lee’s 138 points.

Against common opponents Battle’s defense gave up 72 points where as Lee’s defense gave up only 55

The relevance of all this is good for conversation only … because, as we know, Battle hasn’t seen Lee’s defense and vice versa…

 

I don’t know.. but something tells me Lee wins this one by a Touch Down, maybe??? IDK… this one is hard to say…

This is another toss-up game that I'm going to toss to Lee High. The fact that GC hung with Battle as long as they did makes me think Lee wins by 10 pts. Battle isn't going to score 56 points on Lee's defense.

this is the team lee county has been waiting on for 5 years. it's a shame they don't get the support at the top.  instead of trying to create a culture, somebody needs to get out of their way.  talk is cheap.  their head coach didn't  have any confidence in them grounding out 2 yards at central.  inside 2 yd he passed,passed,passed.  if he can't run wynn and crusernberry behind big 77,74,55,9, he needs to hang up his whistle.

This one should be entertaining......the Lee High faithful can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Lee High has beaten a 2A school with a winning record since 2014.  Sounds a lot like Butch Jones time in the SEC.

Battle by 7...

Great point!   Why do these talented Lee teams seem to underachieve every year????   Are they satisfied with barely making the playoffs?

You got me on that one, Ridgeview finished 6-5 in 2015.  I stand corrected, Lee hasn't beaten a 2A school with a winning record since 2015.  Some might argue that Lee didn't make a goal line stand, just like Union didn't make "the catch" but water under the bridge, it's in the record books.

It was supposed to be run plays our QB ran the wrong plays .... Same thing happened at Ridgeveiw... He's a good lil ball player and a great kid just hope he has learned from his mistakes !!! Our outside LBs need to stay home unlike wise central game and play their man and Lee should come out on top!!!

6-5 is the best record a 2A team that Lee has beaten has had since '99 (Ridgeview '15; Appomattox '14; John Battle '13;  John Battle '11; Powell Valley and J.J. Kelly in '02).  You have to back to at least '98 to find a  2A team with more than a little better than .500 % that Lee has defeated.

Lee has lost to good Union and Ridgeview teams.  They have beaten Gate City and Central, two teams that are obviously going through some really tough times.  Lee has the talent, remember the skill positions are a track team according to Coach Pendergraff, to win this game.  It's at Ben Hur.  No more excuses.

The real question i have from the game was where was lee's fans at i domt know if it is just where the stands are so big but it looked empty, i thought a team with a winning record would bring out more people than that....especially at home

Someone please explain what the heck is going on at Lee?   Best looking team taking a field I’ve seen this year in size and athleticism but good grief they are just going thru the motions.  Looked to me like they don’t want to play.  Seen no coaching during game with lots of negative coaching comments from the home side.  Plus no one at the game for Lee.  Just my opinion but someone “in the know” chime in please

Thank you for the info.  I didn't have time to do the research but you made the point.  Lee may have a decent record but who are they beating.  No offense to the 1A schools in the Cumberland District or the dismal Gate City and Central teams this year but I would not take a lot of pride in beating up on those teams.
