Turnovers doom Raiders at Lewis

(Continued)

Oct. 16, 2013 —

Lewis County tacked on two more scores, an interception return by Jordan Davis and a Jordan McCann 75-yard run.

“We are just as good at full strength as Lewis County,” Moore said. “We were playing with 2’s and 3’s all over the field and more than that and give credit to our backups for giving us a chance to win that game. If we’re at full strength, it could have been a different outcome.”

East Carter did force a few turnovers of their own but at times, gave it back to Lewis on their own miscues.

“Our defense did good job forcing but offensively we gave it back to many times,” Moore said. “I attribute some to inexperience other lack of execution.”

Now if East Carter wants to make the playoffs, a win over Fleming County on senior night would help put them in better position for the postseason.

“Our back is always against the wall,” Moore said. “We had a chance to get ahead and felt like we were in complete control just before halftime. Then bad things happen and we didn’t respond to it and didn’t get it done. We just have to find someway somehow and find a way to beat Fleming on Friday. “
