Lancers faced Paramount on Friday night at Kiefer Stadium for the Lancers home opener for the 2018 campaign for a Mission League Title.

The Lancers football team received good news earlier in the week regarding their previous matchup with the number one team in the country, The Mater Dei Monarchs, had gone from a loss to a win.

The Monarchs were forced to forfeit the game due to an ineligible player that was active during the blowout victory by the Lancers.

The Lancers game against the Pirates was supposed to a blowout win against for the Lancers but instead, it turned into a defensive battle in the first half.

The Pirates aerial attack led by quarterback Kingston Hala and Wide Reciever Darrius Wallace led to big plays for the offense but the Lancer defense responded.

The Lancers held the Pirates to one score throughout the game. While the Lancers were able to score 21 points to win the game.

The Lancer offense was often stalled by the Pirates because of lack of production from the ground game. The Lancers lost running back Damien Moore to an apparent knee injury in the previous Mater Dei game.

The Lancers running game was led by Seniors Kenny Collins and cornerback Chris Lopez. The Lancers lack of a ground game led to a passing attack that was little to nonexistent.

Although they had their struggles the Lancers got out of Kiefer Stadium with a win to push their record to 2-0.

The Lancers will play JSerra next Friday at Kiefer Stadium.
