The Lakewood - Poly game has come and gone. This is the game I DO NOT look forward to each year. Poly is the dominating team in the Moore League and no other team in the league has beat them since 2009 when Lakewood stopped their winning streak of 86 straight league game wins and considering there are only 5 league games each year that a long time for never losing a league game. So while poly continues to take the league, the rest of the teams fight for 2nd and third place to make the playoffs. Lakewood has been the runner up in the league, taking 2nd place most years, but over the last few years and the constant changes of the coaching staff, Lakewood has been losing their momentum.
Needless to say I expected Poly to really control the game and overwhelm Lakewood on both sides of the ball. You can only imagine how much of a surprise I had when mid-way through the second quarter Lakewood was up 14-7. That lead didn't last long as Poly found their momentum and began moving past Lakewood. Although Poly did win with a 35-21 final score, I was really impressed with how Lakewood played as a team and fought Poly hard throughout the game, something they haven't done all season.
Looking through these shots your not going to see a one-sided game, but a game of action on both sides, so please enjoy my favorites from the game.
