Lakewood Varsity Football vs Poly

I'm going on five years of capturing football action at Lakewood and the one game that these two schools, let alone the league, look forward to is Lakewood and Poly. This will give the winner bragging rights for the coming year and an almost guarantee league champ title.

This brings us to this weeks game. Although this was scheduled as a home game for Lakewood, the game was played at Veteran's Stadium in Long Beach due to the expected amount of fan participation. Now I must say I was excited and somewhat nervous for Lakewood, but that quickly changed. As the game progressed it was obvious that Poly came to play some football and bring home a win. This was a very tough came to shoot as I watched Poly control the game both running and passing. Although Lakewood attempted to mount a comeback, they just couldn't get past Poly's defense.

I know there is going to be a lot of trash talking on the various sports blogs / sites in Long Beach, but I must say congratulations to Poly. You all played a great game and deserved the win. Hopefully you and Lakewood will meet again in the playoffs. Either way it's bound to be a great game of high school football.

Let's start with a couple of shots from the cheer leaders.
