Just a week after losing their season opener on the road in dramatic fashion, the Lakewood Lancers turned the tables and scored a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds of their 14-7 win at San Dimas on Friday night.

Once again the Lakewood defense was fantastic while forcing a pair of fumbles. The second one came in the last minute with the score tied 7-7. Lancers quarterback Valentino Saenz-Castruita made it count by throwing a game-winning touchdown to Sean Lane.

Lakewood (1-1) hosts Laguna Hills on Friday in the Lancers home opener.
