    Citing scores for season games as a way to say something negative about LCA does not paint an accurate picture. Consider how difficult it is to play games where the opposing team simply cannot play the game well, and you are trying to teach the skills and discipline to play against tougher teams. You seem to imply the team should just play keep away and not try...even when it is the second or third string playing. All of those losing teams played hard to the end of every game. They did not ask to be treated as anything other than a high school varsity team. Also, the lack of competition and playing time for the starters hurts their stats and can hurt chances to be seen and go to the next level. LCA played poorly and lost to Valley, and valid dreams of another championship are dashed. And the players are the first to admit they didn't do what was needed in that game. Yes, the officiating got in the way of the game, but LCA could have overcome that issue as well.

    What could have been the final scores to those games though? Anyone think of that? Maybe 150+ if not more in some of those games? So much hate for a high school team. Sad to see these days. If there was such thing as Karma than LCA wouldn't have won state last year according to your statistics. Why do people cheer against LCA so much?
