Warriors looking to rebound on road trip to Beekman Charter

By Josh Beavers

The Lakeside Warriors will be looking to rebound this Friday night following their first loss of the season.

The team went over to West Ouachita and were handed a 40-point loss against the 5A Chiefs. Coach Mike Santelices spoke to The Journal Wednesday morning and said the film showed just too many mistakes on Lakeside’s part.

“I’m not saying we would have won, but it would have been closer if we hadn’t made as many mistakes as we did,” Coach Sant said. “After watching the film, the team’s spirits were lifted and they realized it’s always just a matter of us doing the things we need to do to get better.”

Moving on to this week, Lakeside will be on the road once again. This time, the Warriors will travel two hours to the Northeast to take on Beekman Charter. The Tigers are winless on the season (0-4) and lost 44-6 last week against Lincoln Prep.

Santelices said Beekman poses potential problems because they run a non-traditional four quarterback system. Each signal caller presents unique problems, the Lakeside coach told The Journal.

Beekman Charter is located about 15 miles north of Bastrop.
