Prep football: Cedarcrest burst does in Lakewood

DUVALL — If football games were decided in 12 minutes, Lakewood’s playoff dreams would still be alive. But after a 21-point surge by Cedarcrest in the second quarter of Thursday’s Cascade Conference game, Lakewood’s hopes of winning — and advancing to a play-in game — vanished.

Cedarcrest won the Cascade Conference game 45-26 at Cedarcrest High School and secured the third seed into the district playoffs.

The Cougars took the early lead in the first quarter on touchdowns by Jordan Stauffer and Justin Lane.

But after making some adjustments that curbed the Cougars offense, Cedarcrest outscored Lakewood 38-12 in the final three quarters.

“They had a good game plan,” Teeter said. “They were the more physical team tonight, that’s for sure.”

Cedarcrest’s Tommy Edwards was 4-for-4 passing for 103 yards and the Red Wolves had a total of 359 rushing yards.

Justin Lane led Lakewood with a school record 330 passing yards on 24 of 46 throws. He threw four touchdown passes. Jordan Stauffer caught five passes for 64 yards.
