ELL BUCKLE — Under the lights at Lagler Field with a brand new turf and pristine facilities, the Webb School captured an early lead against visiting Cannon County, but couldn’t hold on in a 42-16 loss to the Lions.
Justus Haggard put the Webb School up early in Friday’s contest with a 45-yard touchdown run, but Cannon County responded with a nine-yard touchdown just before the half.
A missed extra point, however, left Webb with a 7-6 lead.
Cannon County tacked on a field goal and a three-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, while holding Webb to a single, 33-yard field goal in the half, to take a 17-10 lead into the half.
But it was a pair of touchdown runs of two and five yards in the third quarter that helped put the Lions in firm control of the scoreboard.
Webb found pay dirt on another lengthy touchdown run by Haggard in the fourth quarter when he scampered 34 yards to the end zone with 10:00 left in the game.
Cannon County responded with two more touchdown runs to put the game out of reach for good.
In total, Cannon County ran wild to the tune of 525 yards on the ground on 50 carries, while Webb tallied 192 yards on 27 carries.
Quarterback Weston Coop added a pair of passes for 41 yards as well.
Webb returns home to Lagler Field on Friday night and will host Grace Christian Academy at 7 p.m. in Bell Buckle on Friday night.
