CIF Football: Lakewood Travels For Semifinals Friday, Would Host Championship

The562’s coverage of Lakewood Athletics is sponsored by J.P. Crawford, Class of 2013.

The Lakewood football team will hit the road Friday for a 7 p.m. CIF Southern Section Division 8 semifinal game at Rancho Verde High in Moreno Valley. Tickets aren’t yet available but we will post the link as soon as it goes live.

The good news for the Lancers after a pair of road playoff games? If they win on Friday they would host the Division 8 championship against either Northwood or Vista Del Lago next week.

Stay tuned for features, previews, and podcasts all week in the run-up to the Lancers’ big game.
