SPRINGFIELD — It was a monster night from the Lebanon offense, and with that performance, the No. 9 state-ranked in Missouri Class 4 Yellowjackets improved to 4-0 on the season, defeating the Glendale Falcons on Friday night at Lowe Stadium, 40-20.

Although the ‘Jackets have had somewhat of an easy start to the season, they still have taken care of their business the way they were supposed to and have only allowed 27 points through four weeks and are now outscoring opponents 164-27 in 2019.

However, things did get off to a tough start for Lebanon on Friday night on their first possession when senior running back Quameire Wright coughed up the football, and the Falcons took over with stable field position. According to Wright’s father, it was his sons first fumble since seventh grade. 

Don’t worry Lebanon fans; Wright did more than just make up for his one mistake after his overall performance on Friday night.

“He (Wright) was just a bowling ball (on Friday),” Lebanon head coach Will Christian said of Wright’s performance. “I thought all of our backs ran well, and I thought offensively, we played dominant football, but we put it on the ground too much and had too many penalties.

“I know the time of possession and plays ran were in our favor … if we take turnovers away, this thing could have gotten real ugly, but we didn’t do that.”
