Lake Area at Hills. The Patriots’ quick-strike offense scored on the first play from scrimmage on a 95-yard Tyson Bork run and never looked back, building a 28-7 lead after one quarter.

Lake. The Wolverines scored on each of their first seven possessions, racking up nearly 500 yards of total offense for the game. Meanwhile, MLA’s defense kept the Blackhawk offense out of the end zone on a pair of drives in the first half, allowing the Wolverines to seize momentum.
