FOOTBALL:Lodi opens its season with a win over Hawthorne
|Lodi's Jessey Asare.
LODI - After squandering a pair of scoring opportunities early, Lodi was looking at a possible halftime deficit with Hawthorne driving deep in its territory late in the second quarter. It was the first of many gut check moments the Rams will face this season and their response will determine whether they will reach their goals of winning league and state titles. These are the types of battles they need to win over and over again and, thanks in large part to the defensive line and a breakout game from Jessey Asare, Lodi passed its first test of the season with flying colors. Bryan Roth and Mohammed Zaal came up with a big stuff on a fourth-and-goal from inside the 1. Four plays later, Asare turned a busted play into an 87-yard touchdown catch and run to open the scoring. He showed off his blinding speed again in the third quarter with a long TD run as Lodi opened its season with a 29-12 triumph over Hawthorne on Saturday at Lodi High School. MORE...
