Lakeside to face Bulldogs Friday

by Minden Press-Herald

SIBLEY – The Lakeside Warriors are looking to even their record at 1-1 Friday night at home against the Plain Dealing High School Bulldogs. Following a disappointing week one loss to Ringgold, the attitude at practice has been upbeat as the Warriors prepare for a talented Bulldogs team. “They’ve got great athletes,” Lakeside head coach Joey Pesses said. “Coach Thurman has them a little more balanced this year on offense. They have No. 2 (Keldric Carper) at receiver and I think he’s definitely a D-1 receiver. Our angles of pursuit will be important this week. Defensively they fly to the ball and hit you. They don’t have big numbers but they play hard.” On offense, the Warriors will need to be much better than they were in week one. Pesses believes a good place to start is up front. “We did a lot of film study,” Pesses said. “They seem to understand what we did wrong. We have to be more aggressive, block to the whistle and be a little bit nasty until the whistle blows.” The Warriors will be at home for the first time this season, which Pesses hopes will serve as a spark. “We’re all pretty excited,” Pesses said. “I think the kids are ready to be in front our our friends and fans.” Lakeside and Plain Dealing will kick things off from Sibley at 7 p.m.
