Lahser Thumps Groves, Improves to 3-0; Andover Falls Again
The Knights are 3-0 for the second season in a row and are tied atop the OAA Blue with a home game against Royal Oak next Friday.
The final seasons of Andover and Lahser high school football before the merger to the Bloomfield Hills High School in 2013 continued Friday just as the first two weeks concluded: Lahser on top, and Andover searching for a win.
Just like last year's season-opening contest, Lahser used a balanced air and ground attack on the way to a convincing 35-6 victory on the road at Groves, according to the MHSAA website. The game was among eight contests featured on MHSAA's Football Friday Overtime Show on Fox Sports Detroit, and you can view highlights of the game on the MHSAA Prep Zone streaming page (the Lahser-Groves highlights begin about 10 minutes in).
Lahser now takes on Royal Oak at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at Dauch Field. The Rockets are O-3 after falling to Avondale 53-22 on Friday.

It was the third lopsided loss for the Barons, which did manage 13 points, the highest offensive output of the young season, according to the MHSAA website. The Barons will host again next Friday, when Ferndale arrives also looking for its first win at 7 p.m.
