Coming off a heart-breaking 24-21 loss against Lafayette, the Grenada Chargers hope to put that behind them as they take to the road Friday traveling to Columbus.
“We have talked to our guys about not letting Lafayette beat us twice,” Coach Ashley Kuhn said. “I hope we show up ready to play and don’t sleepwalk through it. When you do that, you find yourself in trouble.”
Columbus opened the season with three straight losses. The Falcons won two in a row before losing a 31-8 decision at home against Central Hill last week. They have losses to Provine (15-7), Noxubee County (18-0) and Louisville (32-6) in addition to last week against Center Hill. Their lone division win was a 28-14 decision against rival New Hope.
“They have some outstanding athletes,” Kuhn said. “They are big and run the ball well. Their receivers are tall and could cause us some problems.”
