On Friday, Sept 23 the Lakeview varsity football team competed on their home field against their rival Lakeshore.  The Huskies defeated the Shorians with a final score of 58-35.

  Many student athletes take the Lakeview/Lakeshore rivalry very seriously. Some of these student athletes include seniors Noah Godlewski and Skailar Hage.

  “Nothing makes me happier than winning. The win being against Lakeshore might have been a little sweeter though,” stated Hage.

  As for the win, it was just as important as others.

  Godlewski stated, “Ultimately, every game is just as important, especially when it comes to achieving our team goal.  And with that said, every game every week is important and we take it one game at a time.”

  Lakeview varsity football coach and teacher Patrick Threet also finds it best that his team take the season one game at a time.

  “You always want to beat your rival, but you also don’t want that game to define your season.  If we finished with a record of 7-2 and lost against our rivals, but we won our division, and made the state playoffs, and made a run at a state championship; no one would remember we lost to that team,” Threet said.

  Threet also stated, “It’s just a perspective. If you beat your rivals, but you lose in districts, then your season’s over.”

  Many key components led to the win against Lakeshore and will hopefully contribute to more wins for the Huskies.  Many of those contributions were on the offensive end.

  “Key components of the game were definitely [senior] Chris Wise’s, hard running and our downfield blocking,” Hage stated.

  Threet also commented stating, “Offensively I think we played extremely well, defensively not quite as well as we’d like. I would say that being physical on offense, starting with our linemen, and our tight ends played a large part.”

  Threet backed up this comment by explaining how his team scored many touchdowns because the running back made it to the end zone untouched.

  “We’ve got some good running backs, but them not getting touched at all says a lot about those guys up front,” Threet explained.

  As for the rest of the season, the team is just looking to win as many games as possible.

  “It’s kind of like the Toys R Us shopping spree where one kid gets to put as many toys as he or she wants in the cart in two minutes,” Threet stated.  “That’s the way I  approach the season. It’s nice to throw in all the toys or trophies you can.”

  The Huskies added another win on October 1 against Center Line.
