Football: Todd Barr makes huge play for Lakewood
Junior defensive tackle Todd Barr of Lakewood stripped the ball from Edison quarterback Matt Viles, and Justin Utupo recovered it on the Lakewood 24 to deny the Chargers a chance to widen their 14-7 lead. That's the halftime score.
There was a huge turnaround at the end of the quarter. A bad punt snap enabled Lakewood to take over the ball on Edison's 18-yard line trailing, 14-7. But after three plays, the Lancers tried a 34-yard field goal. It was blocked by Edison's Jeff Trojan.
The Chargers took over the ball on their own 42 and moved it to the eight-yard line after a 29-yard reception by Luke Eddy. Instead of settling for a field goal, Edison gambled and Viles lost the ball.
