Friday night the Lansing football team got back to basics.

To begin with, the Lions played quality defense to hold an explosive Turner team to just seven first half points and 20 in the game. Then behind a multi-pronged offensive attack steered by a fresh face, the Lions pounced on the hosting Bears.

A 20-point second quarter and a 13-point third quarter paced Lansing to a 36-20 victory over its Kaw Valley League opponent.

“We were pretty disappointed about the way things went last week,” Lansing head coach Bill Pekarek said. “We really needed something to boost what our hard work has been all about and give us some confidence. Our players have been working hard and it was a well deserve win for them tonight.”

After a back-and-forth first quarter wherein Lansing played the majority of the 12 minutes inside its own 50-yard line, the Lions started to show some offensive prowess when Joe Schneider subbed in at quarterback for Litton VanDerWerff.
