Lake & Sumter County High School Football Wrap-Up 10/10/22
Terrific Games! Near Upsets! An Incredible Weekend of Action!
Wow we had some incredible games! Excitement doesn’t even begin to describe this week of Football. From one score games to an overtime thriller down in Cheifland! Lets see how your local High School did this week!
Cancelled Games and Byes
Lake Minneola @ Fleming Island – GAME CANCELED
At this moment we are unsure of why this game was canceled but it was. This would have been a fun contest as both teams had a lot to play for coming into the game. We are also unsure if this game will be replayed in the future so as of now we are treating it as a completely canceled football game. If The Hawks won this game it would have been a nice victory to their total and it could have helped them come playoff time. We just hope whatever reason the game was cancelled that everyone is healthy and safe.
Mount Dora Christian Academy – Bye
As we stated MDCA gets an off week before their biggest game of the year to date against Orlando Christian Prep.
Overall what a great weekend of football in Lake & Sumter Counties! Most of the games were actually played away believe it or not. This is the first time this season we have not had a Friday Night Lights Game played in Lake & Sumter county! No wonder the stars looked so bright because the stadium lights were all turned off! But seriously Jupiter has looked spectacular the last few nights and we have full moon this week! Did you say full moon? Yes you heard us correctly! What kind of craziness will next weeks games bring? Tune in next Thursday to find out! Our Friday Night Lights Weekend Preview will be out on Thursday so be on the lookout for more in depth analysis and statistics on the games this weekend! ‘Till then we will see you around!
