WEST BLOOMFIELD- As Laker receiver Trebron Mosley hauled in his third touchdown reception of the game late in last week’s matchup, he flexed his muscles in the end zone, effectively silencing league foe Clarkston and West Bloomfield’s doubters alike.


The Lakers (2-2) clobbered the Wolves (3-1) 37-15 on Family Fun Night this past Friday, establishing themselves as the premier football team that many had expected them to be coming into the season. Clarkston entered the matchup undefeated, featuring a dominant run game that rendered their first three opponents helpless.


West Bloomfield, however, was beyond prepared for this task.The Laker defense put together their best effort of the season, stifling Clarkston’s leading rushers and tallying four interceptions, with two coming from senior safety Nick Seidel. The defensive line additionally wrought havoc on Clarkston quarterback Nathan Uballe, sacking him three times and forcing many errant throws.


Offensively, West Bloomfield picked up where they left off against Lake Orion, as senior quarterback Bryce Veasley connected on four passing touchdowns and senior slot-back Collin Heard rushed for one of his own. Despite these excellent efforts, junior wide receiver Trebron Mosley was undoubtedly the player of the game, breaking out for three receiving touchdowns and ultimately sealing the victory for the Lakers late in the third quarter on a 15 yard score.


The Lakers looked poised to continue their excellence as the season progresses despite their slow start, though they once again face a potent opponent in Week 5. The Lakers travel to Rochester Adams (4-0) on Friday, aiming to hand the hot team their first loss of the year and get onto the positive side of .500 in the record column. As a team that has faced plenty of adversity in their time together, West Bloomfield appears riled up and reloaded, coming back for the top spot in the OAA Red and the state.
