"We have been trying to get the kids better every week. I have seen vast improvements from game to game. We are starting to get that experience, and that is what we are looking for."
The Dots have lost three of four games by seven points, which Lemley hopes has bettered his team for the rest of the season.
"Mentally, they know every game is a tough game," Lemley said.
"There aren't any weak sisters on the schedule. We know if we don't play to our capacity, we are going to get beat. But if we do, we can win. We just have got to put four quarters together."
Quarterback Justin Stewart leads the Poca offense and has given Lemley solid production in his first year at the position. The junior rushed for 143 yards on 31 carries last week against Chapmanville, and has 278 yards on the season.
"Justin has been in a tough situation, having not played in a couple years," Lemley said. "He's been more of a running back than quarterback. We worked him in that situation and he has responded.
"He wants to be a quarterback and a good quarterback. There are a lot of things he has needed to learn, and that comes with game experience. He has the talent.
"He has been durable running the football. We need him to pull the trigger a little more passing. It's a matter of maturing."
Scott is led by running back Cameron Loftus, who is coming off a solid week of rushing for 141 yards and three touchdowns against Sissonville. The senior has 456 yards on the ground for the season.
