Lakeshore wins football regional title over Byron Center


Lead by a stout defensive effort and another great day of running the ball, the Lakeshore Lancers are heading to the final four after beating Byron Center 34-7.

Senior quarterback Michael Adams finished the day with two touchdown runs in the win. After the game he celebrated with his teammates as they hoisted the regional championship trophy.

"Its the best team sport in the world and you got to love each other," said Adams. "We truly are a family."

After losing three games during the regular season, Lancers head coach Denny Dock was unsure how the team would handle the playoffs. Three straight wins, have changed the coach's mind.

"[The regional title] is special," said Dock. "We've really battled out of a hole. We played outstanding [in the regional game]."

Lakeshore will play Zeeland West next weekend for a chance to go to the state championship game in Detroit.

"This feels great," said senior offensive lineman Phillip Dudeck. "Never thought I'd have the opportunity to do this."
