Lucas Viera- Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS varsity football team lost to the Palmetto High School last Friday.

The final score was 55-17 in favor of the Tigers.

With the Mustangs recent loss to Manatee High School, this is their second consecutive loss.

The team is hoping to come out stronger for their remaining three regular-season games.

Mustang head coach Rashad West said, “As for Friday’s game, we played a decent 24 minutes, unfortunately we didn’t play well for the full 48. You can’t play a good half and expect to beat good teams.”
