Announcements and Important Events
Our Varsity Football team continued their winning ways on Friday night, outlasting a tough squad of Bulldogs from FZS on Homecoming for a 29-22 victory. In a game that went back and forth all night long, the Lions took the lead for good early in the 4th quarter when Senior QB Ben Watson hooked up with Senior WR Donovan Shanks for a 68 yard catch and run touchdown. The Lion defense held strong the remainder of the game, keyed by a Watson interception, to secure the hard fought victory.
Watson scored 2 touchdowns on the night, and threw for 2 more. He also rushed for 150 yards on 16 carries. Shanks had 4 catches for 82 yards and the aforementioned touchdown. Qui'lon Bennett also caught a touchdown pass for the Lions. Defensively, Nick Stepney and Bryan Deardeuff lead the way.
Next up is a big GAC Central conference showdown with the undefeated Panthers of Zumwalt North. Game time is 7 pm on Friday, October 5, at FZN.
