After eight games of the 2015 regular season, there is little doubt about the strength of the varsity football team from Lansing High School.

The defensive front seven and offensive lines of the Lions demonstrated their ability and execution again on Wednesday night at home against F.L. Schlagle, leading Lansing to a 40-14 win.

“We ran some different things tonight that gave our kids some angles and allowed them to be successful against their defense,” Lions’ head coach John McCall said. “If we find something that we like, we are going to stay there until we see some adjustments. Our defense prepared well and we did some great things in all three phases of the game tonight. We challenge them to get better each week and that’s not going to stop.”

The game started out with the Lansing defense forcing a punt, then the offense going 86 yards in 10 plays with junior Quinton McQuillan finding the end zone from eight yards out to take a 7-0 lead with 5:59 left in the opening quarter.

After recovering a loose ball on the ensuing kickoff, McQuillan visited the end zone again from three yards out. The extra point kick was no good, and the Lions held a 13-0 lead with 3:17 to play.
