Oxford High School
The Dragons snapped a two-game losing streak on Friday night in Oxford using a strong third quarter to keep the Double O Trophy in Lake Orion for a third straight year in a 31-14 victory over the Wildcats.
The game started out slow due to the foggy and wet environment on the blue turf but Lake Orion started off on defense with Marcus Brown picking off Parker Fleming giving the Dragons good field position to start the game.
Lake Orion would kick a 24 yard field goal by Parker Blust and a 3-0 lead.
The Defense dug in and got the ball back before the half, which resulted in a long drive which led to a Blaze Laurer pass to Johnny Haggitt for a 11 yard touchdown pass and 10-0 halftime lead.
Lake Orion would then start the second half using Dylan Frank and Tyler Vesterand on the ground and a strong offensive line that dominated the Wildcats up front all night. Vesterand scored from five yards out making a 17-0 game.
The defense would then strike on Oxfordâs next possession as an Oxford fumble caused by Dustin Sokolowski and a Chris Cade scoop and score, took the ball back 25 yards resulting in a 24-0 lead.
Lake Orionâs defense would then force the Wildcats to turn the ball over on downs and Frank went 36 yards for a touchdown which resulted in a 31-0 lead.
Oxford would then score two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter but the game was out of reach giving the Dragons their second win of the season.
Lake Orion will be back on the road next week when they travel to Clarkston to take on the Wolves.
