Columbus Lions Beat Monterrey in Sloppy and Chippy Game


The Columbus Lions finally got back in the win column and are back above 500 on the year.

But that fourth win of the season wasn’t pretty.

The Lions beat second place Monterrey, 48-18 in a game that despite what the scoreboard says was chippy and a little sloppy all the way through.

A total of 29 penalties for more than 200 yards was awarded on the night.

To add to it, the Lions struggled on offense, not even reaching the 200 yard mark and held to just 12 points in the second half of play.

“That’s two games in a row we’ve struggled on offense,” Coach Jason Gibson said. “We’ve gotta do some things different or fine tune some things because we’re really struggling on offense.”

The Lions were pretty sharp on defense, holding Monterrey to their lowest point total all year but overall, coach Gibson wasn’t happy with what he saw.

“We went backwards tonight,” he said. “That was as bad as I’ve ever been a part of. I hate to say it like that, I mean we’ll pick it up the next couple games but we’re supposed to finish these games and we can’t play 4 quarters.”

The Lions will have this week off before returning home on May 20th against Dayton.
