MS Lakers Defeat Trinity Prep In Season Opener

30 August 2018

The WPS Middle School Lakers Football Team hosted the Saints of Trinity Prep on a muggy afternoon in our opening game of the 2018 season. The Lakers appeared composed and fit and rolled to 37 – 14 victory on the strength of amazing individual efforts and inspiring team play.

The Lakers dominated play on both sides of the ball, with the Laker D scoring on both a Safety and an Interception Return for a touchdown. Defensive standouts included 7th Graders Jacob Adar- Smith and Tyler Simmons and 8th Grade Captains Mason Williams, Jackson Bennett, and Alex Nabavi.

Offensively, the Lakers were poised and powerful, led by Captains Williams and Bennett and the strong offensive line play of 7th Graders Cruz Warp, Captain Mack Russell, the aforementioned Simmons, and 8th Graders Sameer Siddiqui, Dean Taylor, Parker Brown, and Winston McBride. The O Line performed well and allowed the offense to perform at mid- season levels. Special mention must be made of Captain Mason Williams who threw his first career touchdown pass to 8th Grader Maaz Mohiuddin (also a career first TD Reception) and to 8th Grade Kicker Manolo Fernandez who scored his first career point kicking an extra point attempt through the uprights for the conversion.

The Lakers return to action on 6 September, playing host to Orlando Christian Prep in what promises to be an exciting contest. Kickoff is set for 4pm.

Wish Us Luck!
