Lakeside High School bounced back from its worst loss of the season with a 14-0 win over Cross Creek on Friday night.
Quarterback Chad Chandler accounted for both touchdowns.
Chandler put the Panthers ahead with a 20-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Marshall on a third-down play. Lakeside, which has battled injuries all year, faced the same difficulties Friday.
"We had a lot of injuries," Lakeside coach Jody Grooms said. "Each time, we plugged somebody in there and they'd make a play."
Grooms' team improved to 4-3 overall and 3-3 in Region 3-AAAA.
