Losing fumbles on their first two possessions and losing starting quarterback Nick Patterson to an injury early in the first quarter could have been ugly for the Lakeside Panthers Friday night.
Junior Nick Reid would step in for Patterson, finish 9 of 13 for 170 yards and three long touchdowns as the Panthers beat Richmond Academy, 24-3.
We’ve got two great quarterbacks.” said Panthers’ coach Keith Hibbitts. “It’s a luxury when somebody goes down to have that.”
The Panthers improved to 1-1, 1-0 Region 2-AAAAA while the Musketeers went to 0-3, 0-1.
