Garfield scores first, 7-0 9:39 2Q
Caminong makes it 14-0 5:00 2Q
Lake nets a field goal
Matson to Brown it’s 20-10
Kaden Lauplant hits Ike Redford from 40.
FINAL. GARFIELD 26 LS 16.
It’s Garfield 26 LS 16 1:40 left & this one is gonna be over. Lake will lose and go to 0-1
Nope. That monster in the middle for Garfield (6’4 MLB Michael Montgomery) intercepts Lauplant. I’ll post it to IG story you can see this dude sky into the air and pluck away the ball. No wonder he has SEC offers
Super lackadaisical mood here in general but Lake could score and make it interesting
Lauplant sacked. First sack of the game of a LS QB. 3&15
LS ball midfield trailing by ten 3:00 left
Lauplant TD throw highlight posted above
It’s 26-16 Garfield with 3:32 left in the game. Garfield ball own 21. I’ll have that Laplaunt TD pass highlight up shortly. I
More importantly for the season…the passing game looks better.
The 2pt conversion fails
LAUPLANT TO REDFORD 40 YARDS. A frozen rope.
Laplaunt converts. I think he’s 7/8
4th and 6
The body language is SOOO bad. Injured starters kinda off chatting to friends as the Vikes drive. No emotional rally or anything.
Lauplant in at QB. Two completions to start. But there’s a hold called on the second. Bring it back.
Lake needs a TD. We’ll go from there.
Correction. It’s 26-10. Garfield screwed up
the XP. So technically that’s a two possession game.
Who will be in at QB with Lake down three scores? Cassidy appears done for the day.
Touchdown Garfield. 1 yard run. It’s 27-10 Garfield with 6:13 left
Garfield has run it down to the 1 with 7:15 left
To be direct the real problem here is the passing game. 20 points isn’t a huge deal against the best QB they’ve played in at least two years. The defense has looked pretty damn good imho
In theory the Limar brothers should be the difference in a game like this but for whatever reason they haven’t got it going.
It’s still just 20-10 with 10:00 left but that feeling I described yesterday has manifested in a sloppy, slow and uninspired performance from the state’s top ranked 4A team
That’s a fumble inside the red zone followed by two straight interceptions
This is really one hell of a start sheesh
Matson with another interception and that one is a killer. Rolling left, he must not have seen the middle linebacker, because there was no Kake receiver in sight.
GARFIELD 20 LS 10 — END 3Q.
Lake wins that quarter decisively but still trails by 2 scores and hasn’t shown a knack for chunk yardage. Will Jayden Limar put the team in his back after 3Q fumble near goal line?
Banks with the 15 yard catch and run. But his leg quits on him and he’s lying on the field surrounded by training staff as the 3Q ends
Last play of 3Q
Turnover on downs great hold by Lake DBs in particular
4th and 10. Lake D may have held
3&10 at LS 15
They throw at the mismatch again, off the WR hands.
Caminong picks on Varela at CB again. This one sails just wide. It’s a remarkable height mismatch and i’m not sure where Ike Redford is
Vikings need to hold to a FG or better.
So Garfield ball 1&10 at LS 15 1:12 3Q
Garfield’s players are more explosive.
Underthrown intermediate route picked off by Garfield’s four star LB Michael Montgomery
Matson at QB
Punt with no return. Viking ball own 15. trailing 20-10 with 2:23 3Q
4th & 3 will Garfield punt from own 30?
Cassidy Bolong-Babks, the soph WR/CB who’s arguably been the Vikes’ best threat … is on the sideline getting his ankle taped. Also starting LT Bryce Slezak is lying on his back getting his leg worked on
Big delay around the turnover but it’s 2&9 for Garfield own 27
Quick reset it’s 20-10 Garfield. 6:28 3Q Garfiejd ball own 14
Momentum snuffed ouch. Until then, it’d gone down just like Trayce Hanks predicted on the halftime Live.
Lake has been unable to run inside the ten
Jayden Limar stacked up and stripped at the 8. GARFIELD recovers. That hurts.
