SIBLEY — The Lakeside Warriors have had a great start to the 2013 season. Through seven games, the Warriors sit at 5-2 and are in prime position to lock down their first 2A playoff spot in some time.
Going into their last three games, the Warriors have a good opportunity to control their own playoff destiny. Their remaining three opponents have a combined 5-16 record.
That trek begins tonight with the 3-4 Calvary Baptist Cavaliers.
Calvary quarterback Shea Patterson has completed 78 of 138 passes for 1,372 yards and 17 touchdowns. Split end Jordan Kennedy has caught 22 of those passes for 399 yards and four scores. And running back Orlando Bradford leads the running attack with 331 yards and five touchdowns.
"They have played a very tough schedule thus far," Lakeside head coach Joey Pesses said. "We have to play as a team and not individuals Friday night, being fundamentally sound. As everyone knows there quarterback is very precise. They have many different weapons as receivers and their running back is a staring hard runner. Defensively they are very disciplined and will hit you. We have stressed all week no turnovers on offense and playing as a team on defense. There is no room for individuals against Calvary."
Kick-off will be at 7 p.m.
