A slow start and missed opportunities doomed Sardis last Friday (Aug. 26), as the Lions lost on the road at New Hope by a 14-6 score.
New Hope jumped out to a 14-0 first-half lead before Sardis (1-1) found momentum in the third, when quarterback Blaze Gerhart (pictured above at left) hit Garret Burns from seven yards out for what ended up being the final score.
The Lions had a pair of chances in the fourth quarter to tie the game but were unable to find the end zone, giving the Indians the win in their first game of the season.
Sardis has an open week this week before opening its 5A Region 7 schedule at Arab on September 9.
