ALPHARETTA – Although Lambert entered Friday night’s road game against regionally undefeated Alpharetta as considerable underdogs, the Longhorns gave an incredibly gutsy performance in a losing effort, falling just short 14-12. Lambert (4-4, 3-2, Region 6-AAAAAA) fell behind 14-0 in the first half and was lackluster offensively throughout the contest, but the Longhorns’ defense terrorized the high powered Alpharetta (6-2, 5-0) offense, not allowing the Raiders to pull away late. "We had a tremendous effort tonight," Lambert coach Sid Maxwell said.
