The LSU Purple Haze got more than they wanted with Georgia College & State Disconnected, but ended up winning, 11-7, during the third round of Cowbell Classic in Starkville, Mississippi Saturday.
LSU began the game by scoring the first two points. The teams would trade the next four points to make it 4-2 in favor of the Haze. Disconnected made some adjustments defensively and made Purple Haze pay for some bad drops by scoring the next three in a row to take a 5-4 lead. The teams would trade the next two points as Disconnected took half.
“We started off down 0-2, but came back strong to take half,” said Disconnected captain John Manget.
The first two points of the second half looked like the game would be a battle to the end as both teams scored downwind, with Georgia College still in front 7-6. However, LSU was able to tighten up their defense and capitalize on a pair of drops in the endzone by Georgia College to score five in a row and win the game.
“It was pretty frustrating in the beginning,” said LSU captain Dylan Shannon. “We came out lackadaisical, but we picked it up in the second half and took care of business.”
“I don’t really know what happened towards the end. They got a couple of points that we just couldn’t complete. Hopefully, we will see them tomorrow and get them next time,” Manget said.
