Here we are in the second round of the CIF playoffs. I personally didn't think we would get this far. Don't get me wrong, my son goes to Lakewood and I support them all the way, but with the way they've played this season I really didn't think we would make it past the first round of the playoffs. The first round, which I missed due to having a severe sinus infection, was against Servite at Cerritos College. That game ended at 35-34 with a victory for Lakewood and brought our next game home. There was a lot of talk about Mission Viejo's quarterback and how good he was, but our defense came ready to play and played hard football. The penetrated the line and put a lot of pressure on Mission Viejo's quarterback. Offense started off slow but picked it up in the second half and dominated the field. I can't wait till next week when we meet Poly for the second time this season. I do feel it's necessary to say "Stand by Poly, Lakewood is a different team then when we met the first time"
I always try to get some decent shots of the quarterback during a game. I was able to get some nice shots of Mission Viejo's quarterback but not too many of Lakewood's.
This shot was taken just prior to kickoff and thought it was a great look. It says it all about the competition and what it takes to manage and get a team to this stage. See in next week in the semi-finals against Poly.
