LHS football season starts disappointingly
By Kennedy Hood
The Grizzlies took two losses to start out the football season.
The Grizzlies lost to Whittell, 50-36, Aug. 29 in an away game in South Lake Tahoe.
The Grizzlies played well in the first and second quarters but then became tired in the second half.
The boys struggled with holding back the Warriors but managed to do so fairly well, putting quite a few points up on the scoreboard.
Tyler Lake was the top scorer of this game with two touchdowns. Gus Driscoll was the best tackler of the game with 14 tackles overall and Andrew Kielak not far behind with 13. Lake and Parker Wilson obtained the most yardage of the game with Lake at 151 yards and Wilson at 155 yards.
Although the Grizzlies lost, coach Brad Campbell, remained optimistic, saying they did well for the first game of the year and that they played hard the entire time.
He also said the team would work on their defense for the next game.
However the Grizzlies lost that game also to Big Valley, 38-6, Sept. 6 at home.
The boys had a rough start to the game, but managed to hold the Cardinals in the final quarter.
Parker Wilson was the top scorer of the game with one touchdown and Wilson obtained the most yardage as well with 181 yards. The best tackler of the game was Sam Beard with six tackles overall in the game.
The Grizzlies will have their next home game tomorrow starting at 1 pm.
