The Plain Dealing Lions closed the regular season with a 16-12 victory over the Magnolia School of Excellence Mariners on Friday night at Lee Hedges Stadium.

Plain Dealing went 3-5 overall and 2-4 in District 1-1A in Christopher Wilson’s first year as head coach.

Sadly, the Lions qualified for the playoffs but will not be able to participate. Wilson said he tested positive for COVID-19 and the entire team has been quarantined.

Magnolia finished its season 1-5 overall and 1-4 in district.

The Mariners didn’t make things easy for the Lions. Wilson took the blame for his team’s low-scoring output.

“My team, those boys played a great game defensively,” he said. “I didn’t help the offense calling the plays tonight.”

The Lions also lost two fumbles inside the 5 and had a couple of potential touchdown catches ruled out of bounds.

“We didn’t help ourselves,” Wilson said.

Plain Dealing led 16-6 in the fourth quarter. Magnolia made it close with a late TD in the fourth.

Keionje Perry and Tre Boyd scored touchdowns. The Lions got a pair of two-point conversions, which proved decisive.

Twenty-three players dressed out for the game. Injuries took a big toll all season. Several players Wilson was counting on back during the summer suffered season-ending injuries.

He said the ability of his healthy players to be flexible and adapt was one of the stories of the season.
