Take away kickoff returns and the Lakeside football team would have held Kootenai to three touchdowns Oct. 8.

Still, the Knights did more than enough offensively to steal a win on their rivals’ homecoming night.

Lakeside put five touchdowns on the board in the first quarter and won the game 62-34.

“It was our best game of the year,” Coach Chris Dohrman said. “We played pretty well, except on kickoffs. We executed well on offense and defensively played better than we have all year.”

Tucker Sanchez threw six touchdown passes on the evening, three to Vander Brown, two to Qwincy Hall and one to Jamari Peone, as his team improved to 3-4 going into a bye week.

The Knights have one game remaining following their break, a league game with Wallace that, if won by Lakeside, will clinch an SIC title and playoff spot.

The Knights gave up just two touchdowns defensively, the other three coming on kick returns (2) and an interception return (1).

“Tucker had a great game throwing the ball, and we were able to get everyone in the game and give them some much-needed experience,” Coach Dohrman said. “We’ll look to improve on this game and enjoy our bye week.”

Up Next: Lakeside (3-4, 1-0 SIC) returns to action Oct. 22 when it hosts Wallace (2-4, 0-1 SIC) for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
