The Lakeside Little Warriors football team paired up against the Glenbrook Apaches Monday night at Lakeside. The Apaches prevailed winning the game 27-7.
The Glenbrook Apaches team is made up of fourth and fifth graders. Offensive coordinator Alex Collins thought the game went well.
“There are things we saw that need improvement, that we will certainly work on for the upcoming weeks. I thought Lakeside was a very competitive team and gracious host,” said Collins. “There will be many good contests played against each other in the upcoming years. Both teams are full of great athletes and good sportsmanship, which shows that both organizations are developing student athletes in a way our parish will be proud of.”
Lakeside Principal, Denny Finley feels that providing this new sporting opportunity to the younger generation is a great investment for the players, parents and fans.
“The first season has been nothing short of amazing. Hats off to Coach Roo Johnson and Coach Mike Santelices, along with many parents for organizing the league on top of their busy schedules,” said Finley. “The Little Warriors football team continues to have a great following and has created a lot of excitement in the area. Now that everyone knows the possibilities, nothing is going to stand in the way of this league becoming bigger and better and this will pay dividends when all of these kids get to high school. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
The Warriors are spending the rest of this week preparing for their next game against West Monroe Ouachita Christian School, while the Apaches are getting ready for their Championship tournament. More details on the tournament bracket will be released at the end of this week.
