The first half of the football season was a forgettable one for Indian Lake.
A top-heavy schedule put the Lakers at 1-4 after the first five games. But now the Lakers have to thrive with a much more manageable slate of games.
Indian Lake (3-4, 2-0) is coming off comfortable Central Buckeye Conference Mad River division wins over Graham (30-6) and Northwestern (51-0).
Up next is a road contest at Greenon on Friday.
“The Mad River division is our focus now,” said Indian Lake head coach Dave Coburn. “What we do have control over now is our chance at a league championship. That is a goal we can still achieve, so that is our primary focus.”
The Lakers have been leaning on their ground attack, which is led by senior fullback L.J. Henderson. Indian Lake has averaged nearly 300 yards on the ground in its past two games.
Henderson is third in the CBC with 754 rushing yards and six scores.
“We’ve stuck with what has been working the past couple of games,” said Coburn. “We want to try and be balanced and we know we need to be. Our offensive line has done a nice job opening holes, and our backs are running hard.”
