For the second consecutive week, Lakeside’s football team was shorthanded going into a nonleague game with Wallace.
And for the fourth consecutive week the Knights looked – and played – the part of a team two steps ahead of its opponents.
Lakeside continued its recent dominance of league and nonleague opponents alike Oct. 4 as they cruised to a 56-6 win over the Miners.
“We played a pretty good football game overall as a team last Friday,” Coach Chris Dohrman said. “We limited our mistakes, took care of the ball, played good defense and executed well on offense.”
J.J. Hall opened scoring for the Knights midway through the first quarter on a 23-yard run.
The next three touchdowns belonged to Tucker Sanchez, who extended Lakeside’s lead to 26-0 with a four-yard rushing touchdown, a five-yard passing play and a 33-yard toss.
The Miners got on the board just before halftime to make the score 26-6.
Tucker found Alberto Arroyo for a 21-yard touchdown pass in the third frame, and Alberto found pay dirt in the fourth on a 19-yard rushing score.
The Knights final pair of touchdowns came on interceptions, the first by J.J. and the second courtesy of Blake Faber to cap the score at 56-6.
The Knights travel to Clark Fork Friday for the rematch of a season-opening 28-6 win over the Wampus Cats.
“We will look to be at full strength this week as we travel to Clark Fork for a very big league game,” Coach Dohrman said.
Kickoff Friday between Lakeside (4-0, 2-0 NSL) and Clark Fork (1-3, 0-3 NSL) is set for 7 p.m.
