So far, it's been so far, so good for the Lake Oswego football team.
Maybe, so very good is more accurate.
The Lakers won their third straight game on Friday, Sept. 17, rolling past South Medford 41-14 at Lake Oswego High School. With the win — the Lakers' third straight — Lake Oswego improved to 3-0 on the season while the Panthers lost for the third straight time and fell to 0-3 for the season.
The Lakers blasted out to a 28-0 lead in the second quarter, expanded their lead to 34 points in the third period and coasted home from there.
Lake Oswego's scores came on: an 8-yard run out of the wildcat formation by senior running back Gabe Olvera; a 19-yard run by Olvera on fourth down; a 44-yard Olvera run that capped the first quarter at 21-0; an 80-yard run by Calvin Macy; a 55-yard pass from senior quarterback Jack Layne to Olvera; and finally, a 41-yard TD pass to senior tight end Dylan Layne — Jack Layne's twin brother — for the final 41-14 margin.
