Lakota blanks Danbury, 64-0

BY YANEEK SMITH, BEACON CONTRIBUTOR

KANSAS — Lakota scored at will against Danbury and won the game, 64-0. It was the third consecutive win for the Raiders (4-5, 3-3 SBC River), who are playing well after beginning the season 1-5.

Danbury (0-9, 0-6) had trouble keeping Lakota’s high-powered offense in check from the very beginning. It only got worse as the game wore on.

“Obviously, they were down. For our seniors, I don’t know what their feelings were. In many ways, this was their last game,” said Danbury coach Keith Mora. “Next week is 8-man football. My message was: ‘It’s been a really long year, a really tough year. They’ve worked each week to get better. We’ve got one more game to play for me, and I would sure like to see a number in the win column other than 0. We’re going to go into a game where we feel more evenly matched.”

This Friday, the Lakers travel to Sandusky to face St. Mary Central Catholic in an 8-man football game.

“We’re looking forward to this week, (and it is) giving us something positive going into the offseason. I’m just proud they haven’t quit on each other,” said Mora. “There are other teams struggling that are going through a streak of losses. A lot of those teams have guys that quit, that have given up on that season. We haven’t done that. They’re still giving a great effort.”
