Lakewood (5-2) and Rosewood (4-3) take on one another this Friday at 7:00 PM on Lakewood's home turf. Rosewood will have its work cut out for it since Lakewood boasts a defense that has allowed an average of only 10 points per game.
Lakewood was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap last week as it fell 21 - 14 to North Duplin. The team got a solid performance out of junior Jahdon Smith (he earned one touchdown and 172 yards rushing the ball); unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the win.
Meanwhile, Rosewood brought the heat last game after its low-scoring effort (zero points) in the match before. It took its game last week with a confident 41 - 7 score. At 34 points, that marked Rosewood's largest margin of victory so far this year.
The last time they met, Lakewood pulled ahead with a 29 - 28 photo finish. Will it come out on top again? We'll soon find out.
