Albeit they did not make it to the MIAA tournament this season, the Silver Lake football team continues to compete hard–and their offense shined last week.
While the Lakers were unable to come out on top in their Thursday, Nov. 1 bout against the Rockland Bulldogs, they scored three touchdowns in the 42-21 bout; it was their third-highest point total of the season and the most they had scored in a game in which they did not come out on top. With the loss, the Lakers fell to 2-7 on the season.
From an offensive standpoint, quarterback Ben Lofstrom helped propel the team’s attack, among others including Michael Cambria, who had a pair of touchdowns (one rushing and one receiving) in the team’s 27-9 win over Norwood one week prior.
The Lakers next bout is this Friday, Nov. 9 against a Patriot League opponent. They are set to host the Hanover Indians in a game that will start at 6 p.m., according to MaxPreps. It is their second to last game of the season as they will have a bye week next week, giving them more time to prepare for their Thanksgiving Day (November 22) bout against the Pembroke Titans.
The Lakers will be at home on Turkey Day this season and both of those games present the team with the opportunity to earn their first Patriot League win of the season; so far, they are 0-5 in league action this year. The two opponents left on the Lakers schedule are in the Fisher Division while Silver Lake is in the Keenan Division and Hanover is 5-4 this season while Pembroke is 1-8 on the year. Offensively, Pembroke has struggled mightily this season, averaging just six points per game while allowing more than 30 in those same contests.
