10/7/16 - The Woodmore football team scored the first points of its Northern Buckeye Conference game at Lake, but could not put any more points on the board the rest of the game in losing a 21-7 decision.  The Wildcats reached paydirt first, with 58 seconds left in the first quarter, on an 84-yard pass-run play down the Lake sideline between junior quarterback Donovan Reyes and senior wide receiver JT Atkin.  The Wildcats had a couple scoring chances in the second quarter and failed to convert and Lake got on the board with a back-breaking 48-yard punt return with just 33 seconds left in the first half.  Woodmore had the ball first-and-goal at the one-yard line in the second quarter, and failed to score, and had another opportunity that was not converted when the ball was lost on a fumble after a long pass play deep into Lake territory.  Lake, which held an 8-7 halftime edge, scored on its first possession of the second half and then put the final points of the game on the board midway through the final stanza.  Lake had a 367-263 edge in total offense and a 13-11 edge in first downs.  Lake rushed for 240 yards while Woodmore had -22 yards rushing.  Reyes completed 19-52 passes for 285 yards with Atkin catching eight balls for 213 yards.  Lake had 127 passing yards.  Woodmore turned the ball over six times, five on interceptions, while Lake had four turnovers.
