Burk career high not enough to edge out warriors

Alec Noa, Staff Reporter

On Saturday Sept. 29 the Lakeland College Football team took on Wisconsin Lutheran College at Raabe Stadium.

Kendrick Burk led the Muskie offensive strike rushing for a career high 149 yards in the game. But Burk’s efforts still weren’t able to give the Muskies the win dropping the contest 27-17. Fourth down and third down conversions proved to be the difference in the game with the Warriors from Wisconsin Lutheran being able to convert on most of them and keep the drives alive.

The Muskies fell to an early eleven point deficit when the warriors scored twice off of two pass plays that were able to find the end zone. But Lakeland was able to recover, scoring twice in two minutes. The Muskies’ momentum started to go their way when Landon Derginer blocked a punt and Deron Thomas was able to scoop the ball and run down the field for a touchdown.

The Muskies’ defense also took the game into their own hands when Cody Lemke intercepted a pass and took it back all the way to the 18 yard line. The Muskies were able to convert on the scoring opportunity and took the lead 17-14.

But the Muskies’ defense was unable to keep the Warriors out of the end zone again getting out-scored 10-3 in the second half and dropping the game 27-17. The loss has put the Muskies’ overall record to 0-3.

The Muskies will look to rebound this weekend in their homecoming game against Rockford College at home on their own Taylor Field.
