After getting back on the right track with a 26-18 victory over Cardinal Stritch in Week 4, the Danbury Lakers lost a tough game, falling 47-0 to Edon to drop to 2-3 on the season.
Bombers quarterback Kaden Sapp threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and Edon controlled the tempo throughout in the victory. With the win, the Bombers improve to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference. The Lakers are now 1-1 in the TAAC.
Edon took a 7-0 lead when Trevor Green ran for a 35-yard-score with 9:43 left in the first quarter and pushed the lead to 14 points when Sapp connected with Brock Thiel for a touchdown. Thiel would later catch another touchdown pass from Sapp in the third quarter to further the lead.
Despite putting up 47 points on the Lakers, the Bombers' defense was just as impressive, holding Zach Kalinoski and the Danbury spread offense in check for the entire game.
“I thought we had a good plan for them, but they beat us on the line,” said Danbury head coach Bryan Dudash.
Last season, the Bombers finished 7-3 and qualified for the playoffs. There is a good chance that, should they finish 4-1 or better, they'll make it back to the postseason.
After playing three consecutive road games, the Lakers host Toledo Christian on Friday. The Eagles are 3-2 on the season and have won two consecutive games, highlighted by 41-13 win over Cardinal Stritch last week.
With five games left in the season, there is still a good chance that the Lakers can achieve their goal of winning more games than they did last season (3) and continue to build a successful program. Needless to say, getting a win this week would set them on the right track.
