11:03 pm Aug. 29, 2014

In the end, Creekside’s talent, smart coaching and heart of a champion could not overcome an uncharacteristically undisciplined performance.

Neighborhood rival Langston Hughes (2-0) – a squad with just as much talent, ranked No. 7 in Class AAAAAA – used a stingy defense and opportune offense to build a 21-0 lead and then withstood a furious rally by Creekside to claim a 21-20 win in the Panther Pit at Langston Hughes

Three plays later, the Lions (0-1) were in the end zone,
