Varsity Football · Lakers Battle Bradford

The football team dropped a hard fought 14-0 battle to Southfield Bradford on Saturday night @ Hazel Park High School.

The Bulldogs scored on the opening kick-off and added a 2-point conversion to take an early 8-0 lead with 11:46 to go in the 1st quarter. The Lakers (1-2) would respond by driving the length of the field before giving the ball up on downs after 1st and goal to go.

The score would remain unchanged until 3:45 left in the 4th quarter when Bradford scored from 36 yards out to make the score 14-0.

The Lakers were unable to respond offensively and the game ended with the same score.

Junior RB Jaylin Gilmore led the offense with 122 yards rushing on 21 carries. Morris Briggs added 41 yards on 10 carries.

The defense was solid all night and was led by Jayvon Parker’s 5 tackles including 2 TFL’s and a sack while Derrick Hardy and Gilmore added 3 tackles each.

The team returns to action on Friday as they will host Adrian Lenawee Christian at Lawrence Tech. Kick-off is slated for 7 pm. Admission is $5.
