The Lakeland Junior Varsity football team blasted Royal Oak 48-14 Thursday night at the Pink Out game. Quarterback Zachary Humphrey tossed a touchdown pass to Nicholas Schaible to open the scoring at the 6:05 mark of the 1st period. After the swarming Eagle defense stopped Royal Oak on their first drive, Ryan Wonders scored on a 21-yard scamper to give Lakeland at 14-0 lead.
The Eagles never looked back as they stopped the Ravens on a 4th and goal at the 2-yard line midway through the second quarter. Sophomore running back Michael Kutzleb scored on a 38-yard sweep with just 38 seconds in the half.
In the second half, the Eagles broke the game open on a back to back touchdown runs by Andrew Bovay. Bovay scored from 45-yards out in the third quarter and from 54-yards on a sweep around left end. Michael Kutzleb closed out the scoring for the Eagles with a dazzling 72-yard punt return.
The Pink Out game was held to raise awareness for all forms of cancer. To highlight the special evening, a survivor walk was held at half time of both the freshman and junior varsity games lead by the JV cheerleaders. The cheerleaders donated $106.00 and assisted in raising a total of $846.42. All the funds will be donated to three different cancer organizations.
