Before the game, Spectrum staff spoke with a few members of the opposing team, in hopes to learn about how they prepared to defeat a team that was 9-1 last year. Unfortunately, Lake Orion players had no comment for Spectrum reporters.

Though the opposing team took the lead in the beginning of the game, the Lakers dominated the field throughout the night. Nikon Katibat, back-up kicker, was put to the test after just three days of practice. Other than the single touchdown that started the game, the Varsity defense was able to keep Lake Orion from scoring throughout the game.
