LA Rebels Fall to Starkville Volunteers


The Leake Academy Rebels were back on their home field tonight in Madden playing the Volunteers of Starkville Academy after a road game loss last week to Jackson Academy.

The Rebels only scoring drive came in the second quarter. The Volunteers continued to dominate the game in the second half scoring a touchdown in the third quarter and a field goal in the fourth quarter to win the game 39-7. Colton Burns and Bryce Watkins were named tonight’s IN SPORTS players of the game. Next week the Leake Academy Rebels will travel to Union to play the Yellowjackets of Union Academy.
