Lopez scores twice to fuel Bulldogs offense

Palmer halfback Jalen Lopez (30) uses a block downfield during a 58-yard TD run to start the third quarter. Staff Photos/Mark Warde Lexington scored 27 straight points to pull away from a stubborn Palmer team on their way to a 57-12 triumph in the bi-district playoffs at McGregor’s Bulldog Stadium on Thursday night. Held in check during a first quarter in which Palmer outgained the Eagles 147 to 69 in total offense, they nearly grabbed a two touchdown lead, but failed to capitalize before Lexington began to display their considerable talent the rest of the way. The No. 10 ranked Eagles (8-2), who were 13-1 a year ago, used a pair of quarterbacks and a power running game to gash the Bulldogs. Once they began to click, the tempo and momentum shifted and Palmer was powerless to stop them in the middle quarters when Lexington outscored them 47-6. Wesley Greenlee, a 6’1 senior quarterback, got the start when Adrian Cisneros couldn’t go due to an ankle injury. Greenlee was confident and effective early and often. He had a pair of good gainers and pitched the ball to senior Jalen Lopez on third down. He cutback for a pick-up of 11 to reach the Birds 28.
