MAUMELLE — Lonoke coach Doug Bost said his team did some good things during its scrimmage with Maumelle and Little Rock Fair on Monday. He also said there were some things they needed to work on before opening the season Sept. 6 at Star City.
Lonoke played a 20-minute period against both Maumelle and Fair.
“It’s just good to get out and play somebody different,” Bost said. “We’ve been hitting on each other for three solid weeks now.”
Bost said his team didn’t get to do as much in the scrimmage since the Jackrabbits played both the Hornets and War Eagles for 20 minutes each.
“But there were some good things … we did a good job of running the ball,” he said. “The offensive line did some good blocking. We dropped a few passes and we had some missed assignments on defense. But it’s clearly stuff that when we see it on film, we will be able to point it out to the kids and get that correct.”
The Jackrabbits rushed for 120 yards on 22 carries in the combined games. Quarterback Kody Smith led the way with 89 yards on 12 carries. Deven Mosley had 22 yards on six carries.
Nick Watson and Dylan Goforth both caught passes for the Jackrabbits.
Smith completed 5 of 15 passes for 51 yards. Blake Mack caught three passes for 39 yards and a touchdown.
The Hornets rushed for 130 yards and passes for 36. Fair had only four total yards.
In the scrimmage with Maumelle, the Hornets outscored the Jackrabbits 10-7. Lonoke’s only touchdown came on a 28-yard pass from Smith to Mack with 4:55 left in the 20-minute scrimmage. Jose Garcia kicked the extra point to tie the score at 7-7.
Maumelle’s points came on a 54-yard touchdown run and an 18-yard field goal late in the scrimmage.
Against Fair, Lonoke scored the only points. Smith scored on a 10-yard run after scrambling during a passing play. Garica kicked the extra point.
Fair’s last possession ended on an interception by Lonoke’s Dylan Walker.
