Football: Pine Lake at SouthLake Christian
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. Pine Lake Prep (2-0) at SouthLake Christian (2-0). Last meeting: This is the 1st meeting. THE SKINNY: PLP is the surprise team in the lake area, winning its first 2 games after going 0-10 last season. The Pride is doing it with defense, beating Vance JV 6-0 and Atkins 8-7. PL’s defense recovered 5 fumbles last week, a good thing because its offense turned the ball over 6 times. But a 2-0 start is doing nothing but wonders for a fledgling program’s confidence. SL, a reigning state champion, is off to a fast start under new coach Bobby McLaughlin. Dudan scored both TDs in last week’s 12-8 win against Victory Christian, on a quarterback keeper and on a fumble return. The Eagles also got a key interception by Will Eason late in the game, after the pass was deflected by teammate Jack Fording.
