Blue Streaks win, 42-20
No matter how the Lakeside Dragons (2-4) tried to claw their way back at Madison (5-1) on Friday, they could not overcome the ground and pound of the Blue Streaks run game.
Ahead 28-6 at the half, Madison saw the Dragons open their first drive of the third quarter with a big pass play from QB Alex DiSalvatore downfield to senior WR Caleb Stitt. He was tackled from behind by Blue Streaks senior safety Noah Barnes deep into his own team’s territory. Lakeside made magic again, converting a 4th and 1 at the three yard line to set up a touchdown by sophomore running back Devan Millar on a pitch play. That brough the Dragons to within 28-12.
That momentum was soon back in the Blue Streaks favor. Junior running back Alexander Davis immediately answered with a 60-yard touchdown run down the right side of the field. He had three carries for 72 yards on the night, with the score. He also added one reception for a 21-yard touchdown.
Madison’s senior QB Carson Alley led his team to an early lead as they struck for three second quarter scores – two in the air. He finished the game 10-of-15 passing for 164 yards and four touchdowns. He was even more detrimental to the Dragons on the ground, wearing out the defense with 21 carries (184 yards).
Junior Mac Steele hauled in seven receptions on the night, including two touchdowns for the Blue Streaks. He finished with 91-yards receiving. Fellow junior, 6′-2″ Ryan Radkowski, also scored on his lone reception of the night, a 22-yard pass from Alley.
