The Silver Lake High football team traveled up the road to face a tough Patriot League opponent last Friday night.
The Lakers faced the Marshfield Rams, who had not lost a game in Patriot League play and their opponent kept that winning streak going. Marshfield beat them 37-8. With the loss, the Lakers fell to 2-5 on the season.
Marshfield’s offense only scored in the first half, but its defense also put up a couple of points in the second. Marshfield led 35-0 at halftime in this one.
The first touchdown for Marshfield came on a 54-yard touchdown early in the first quarter; the team also had a three-yard touchdown run later on in the quarter.
Marshfield went on to add three more touchdowns in the second quarter. Two of those touchdowns came on passes and the other was a 10-yard run. The team made all of its extra point kicks.
The final score of the bout for Marshfield came in the third quarter. Marshfield got two more points on a safety against the Lakers.
While the Lakers entered the fourth quarter down 37-0, they didn’t give up. They scored their first and only touchdown of the game in the fourth. It came on a three-yard run from Austin Smith. He was also the receiver on the successful two-point conversion attempt. Jacob Barnett threw the pass on that two-point try.
The next game for the Lakers will take place this Friday, October 29 on the road against the Hingham Harbormen (7:00 p.m. start time). It will mark the end of the regular season, although the Lakers will play a few more times in November.
