SLIDESHOW: Concrete Lions crash Seattle Lutheran Saints homecoming 34-6
by Greg McCorkle
The sun was out and the 2012 homecoming king, queen, and the court were announced. Reminders about the fundraiser to help send Seattle Lutheran students to London and the food that’s available at the snack bar went out over the public address system. It was smiles everywhere. But nobody told the Concrete Lions about any of that. They weren’t invited to that party.
Led by the arm of Dallas Newby, wide receiver Brendon Shope and the running tandem of #17 Gibson Fichter and #31Josh Rogge the Lions cruised to a 34-6 victory. All of the Lions success can be attributed to an adept offensive line that dictated the tone from the beginning. Concrete ran at will for gashing amounts of yardage that the Saints had no answer for.
The Lions didn’t come to West Seattle Stadium to party, they came to play football and they came with a chip on their shoulder. That’s what a two hour drive from Skagit County will do for your mindset.
The Lions long ride home was likely an electric one. Seattle Lutheran's short ride home wouldn't be nearly as exciting.
The next game for Seattle Lutheran will be an away game Friday October 5th against league opponent La Conner.
