Lakeview 42 White Cloud 7
“We have a lot of work to do,” said Head Coach Dan Ruthven after the Wildcats rolled past the Indians in the CSAA Silver opener for both teams. “Offensively we just could not find our groove.”
Sophomore QB Devon Trice threw...
...a TD pass to Eric Plotts and Lasse Wellfeld kicked the extra point, but that was the only scoring on the night for the Cloud.
Defensively Junior Buck Seabrook led the team in tackles. Freshman Alex Doke led the team in rushing while Junior Isaiah Smith led the team in total offense yards.
“We will change some things up this week and see if we can turn it around,” added Coach Ruthven.
The Indians will go on the road again Friday when they face the 2-1 Kent City squad. The Eagles defeated Holton 30-0 Friday night.

The Mohawks grabbed the CSAA Silver opener for the two teams behind a strong defensive effort to avenge last season’s loss to the Panthers and run their overall record to 2-1.
Hesperia’s Kanin Witte ran for 94 yards while teammate Gerritt Yates added another 76 yards and pulled in a pass for a 24 yard TD and the lone Panther score on the night.
Gage Balkema and Witte led the defense for the visitors with 10 tackles apiece and Balkema also swatted away a pair of Mohawk conversion attempts.
The Panthers return home where they will do battle with the Red Devils of Holton and try to hold onto the Golden Football that they took from their rivals last season.
Holton was defeated by Kent City 30-0 Friday to fall to 1-2 on the season.
