in

The Grambling Laboratory High School Kittens fell to 0-3 on the season Friday as Lake Providence took a 22-12 win at rain-soaked Robinson Stadium in Grambling.
Both teams started strong, but it was the Panthers who would stay strong late to pull away from the Kittens.
“They took over late and there was nothing we could do,” Grambling coach Jerald Kennedy said. “We actually got off to a decent start, but it’s tough to play in the kind of weather conditions we had with all of the rain. All we could do is line up in the full-house backfield and try to run through the mud.”
