(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – On Thursday March 30 the Lakewood Ranch High School Flag football team scored its first win ever, over Southeast High School.

The all-girl team took the field at 6 p.m., scoring three touchdowns in the first half.

After halftime the ladies ended up scoring three more touchdowns. The final score of the game was 39-0.

“As a team we played great yesterday, defense didn’t not allow Southeast to score at all and offense was great at putting the ball in the end zone,” said LRHS defensive coach Roosevelt Atkins.

This is the first year for the LRHS flag football team.

“It was really exciting to win by that many points, I think it boosted all of our confidence,” said junior Nikki Cain.

The teams next scheduled game is 6 p.m. Tuesday April 3 at Palmetto.
