PREVIEW: Lakewood Football vs. Corona del Mar

The Lakewood Lancers are still looking for their first win of the season, but they’ll host a tough opponent in Corona del Mar tonight at 7.

Corona del Mar (2-1) is ranked No. 3 in CIF-SS Division 4 after a loss to JSerra and wins over Palos Verdes and El Toro. Sea Kings quarterback Ethan Garbers is averaging 240 yards passing per game with nine touchdown and no interceptions. Fellow junior John Humphreys has caught seven of those scores as the top receiving target.

Lakewood (0-2) has played closer games than expected in defeats to Mayfair and Windermere Prep in Florida. Senior running back Sebastian Kronberger has already rushed for 294 yards in two games, while senior Darrius Cole leads the defense with 12 solo tackles.

“We played more physically last week (against Mayfair) so we need to continue doing that,” Lakewood coach Mike Christensen said.
