LAKESIDE 38, BUTLER 0

PLAY OF THE GAME: After the teams combined for six punts on their first six possessions, Lakeside quarterback Ben Wilson scrambled to his left to avoid a pass rush, squared his shoulders and heaved a 53-yard bomb for a touchdown to Justin Pitock on the last play of the first quarter.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Lakeside's Ricky McMurtrey rushed for 143 yards and a TD on nine carries.

WHY LAKESIDE WON: The Panthers took awhile to get going, but when they did, six players scored touchdowns in just more than two quarters.

WHY BUTLER LOST: The Bulldogs were overpowered in the trenches. Butler ran the ball 19 times for net 0 yards, and managed only 45 yards of total offense. The loss was the 40th in a row for the Bulldogs.

QUOTable: "At this time of the year, you've got to get better, and I'm not sure we did that tonight. Our extra-point team, we've got to address that. There are some things we have to clean up." -- Lakeside coach Jody Grooms

Not one mention that LHS is

Not one mention that LHS is now in the driver's seat for the Region Championship? See my comments under the Evans game on the slighting of LHS by the Chronicle. There's some kind of obvious bias here. The public school with the highest SAT scores in the CSRA from the most affluent area maybe? That's okay, slights like that can work to your advantage. LHS against the world it appears.

You're right, you will host

You're right, you will host another region's #4. Statesboro will also end your season. Remember Evans last year, 1 and done.
