The Sunlake Seahawks and Land O’ Lakes Gators both have talented football teams. But one is simply better right now.
That team is Sunlake, as evidenced by a 34-0 victory over Land O’ Lakes on Sept. 18. The game was tight in the first half, with just a 7-0 edge for Sunlake at halftime. But the game got away from the Gators, who fell to 2-2 and 0-1 in 6A-6 district play.
The home victory upped Sunlake’s record to 4-0, and gave the team its first win in district play.
Both teams have plenty of district games left to determine who moves on to the playoffs. Sunlake begins a three-game stretch of district play on Oct. 2, while Land O’ Lakes has three district games in a row starting Oct. 16.
