Luella at North Clayton Game Preview (copy)

The Luella Lions are slated to face McIntosh this week.

Luella is still searching for its first win of the season but there could be a chance this week against McIntosh High. Following a shootout to McDonough High, there may be a weakness for the Lions to squeeze through their first victory of 2019.

McIntosh didn't struggle late in the game against McDonough High but the Chiefs didn't take the victory as the Warhawks won for their new stadium and head coach. Friday’s game presents an opportunity for Luella to get right offensively before heading into Region 4-AAAA play.

Last year, McIntosh had to go to overtime against Luella but the Lions came away with the victory handily.
