Junior Jack Maher replaced him and later tossed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Hamilton with 1:48 remaining in the fourth quarter to pull the visitors within one score. But the ensuing onside kick was recovered by the Lancers and they were able to run out the clock.

WWS trailed just 10-7 at halftime despite turning the ball over three times, one of which was returned 30 yards for a Lake Park touchdown. The Tigers scored on a five-yard TD run by Stebbins with 39 seconds remaining before intermission, which came after a…

We put too much pressure on our defense. “And Lake Park is a good football team. They quarterback had a great game. They are a very solid, defensive team and they were aggressive.”
