WALNUT CREEK, CA- The annual “Battle of the Creek” rivalry game between the Las Lomas Knights and the Northgate Broncos ended in victory, as the Knights dominated 34-7.
Success started early as senior quarterback Michael Wood rushed into the endzone for a quick two-yard touchdown, pushing the momentum towards the Knights. Wood ran in for another two-yard touchdown during the fourth quarter, adding more yards to his successful night.
“We just had to shake off last week,” Wood said in an interview, while discussing their disappointing loss to Acalanes last Friday, 0-42. “We wanted it more and we came out to play and, you know, the [team] was just great.”
A recovered fumble, numerous sacks and Wood’s ability to connect with his receivers proved to be the key in stomping the Broncos. The Knights hold the title of “Owning the Creek” for the fourth consecutive year in a row.
