Compton Football Lakewood

Football: Lakewood Leads Compton, Game Postponed

The Moore League clash between Compton and Lakewood was about as messy as the weather on Friday night. The visiting Lancers took a 13-7 lead into halftime, and the game was postponed in the third quarter due to lightning. The two teams will resume the contest tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Lakewood (2-6, 1-2) took a 7-0 lead on the first possession of the game after chewing up six minutes of the first quarter. The Lancers capped their 12-play drive with a six-yard touchdown run by quarterback Gevani McCoy.

Compton (5-2, 1-2) answered quickly and tied the game thanks to a 59-yard touchdown run from quarterback Jesse Brew. However, Compton would turn the ball over twice in the second quarter, and the Lancers used the second miscue to retake the lead on McCoy’s second touchdown run.
