The Lakes Lancers took on the North Thurston Rams Friday night to start their 5 game home series.
A scoreless first quarter had Lakes fans on the edge of their seats. After the Lancers forced North Thurston to punt from deep in their own territory, the punt was recovered by the Rams on the Lakes 20 setting us a score by North Thurston early in the second quarter making it Rams 7, Lakes 0. The Lancers were quick to answer on their next drive tying the game at 7. It was to be the last time for the Rams to get on the scoreboard all night.
By the middle of the third quarter the Lakes line began to dominate the center of the field and Lakes was able to pass effectively to the outside moving the ball on every drive. A touchdown pass from Nick Williams to Jermaine Kearse and several sacks from Kavario Middleton helped keep the Lancers winning streak alive. Final score Lakes 21 Rams 7.
Next week Lakes plays host to Timberline at 7 pm.
