The Lake Forest High School football team's offense struggled for the second straight week as it lost its second game of the season to Delaware Military Academy, 9-6, Sept. 15 at Caravel Stadium.
The six points, coming off a second-quarter touchdown pass from senior quarterback Ty'Kee Scott to senior wide receiver Terrence Best, were the Spartans' first points of the season after a week one shutout loss to Sussex Central High School, 6-0. Lake is now 0-2, 0-0.
After a scoreless first quarter, DMA opened the scoring when sophomore kicker David Rhoades booted a 40-yard field goal to make it 3-0 Seahawks in the second quarter.
With time ticking down in the first half, though, the Spartans finally got on the board with their first score of the season, carrying a 6-3 lead and momentum into the half.
The offense went dry from that point, however, as Lake couldn't find a way to reward the defense's stellar play by putting points up. A strong drive by DMA to open the fourth quarter led to a one-yard quarterback sneak for a touchdown by junior Sean O'Brian.
Lake returns to action and will look to get its offense and season back on track as it visits Henlopen Conference South rival Polytech High School (1-1, 0-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21.
