Rangers host Kingwood for homecomingPublished 9:39am Thursday, October 4, 2012
Lyman Ward Military Academy is welcoming back all of their alumni for homecoming this Friday night in Camp Hill.
The Rangers (0-6) will host Kingwood Christian for homecoming Friday night at 7 p.m.
Lyman Ward has previously defeated the Lions (2-4) in a spring contest and a summer 7-on-7, but Kingwood has added some new additions to the roster since that point.
“They are an athletic team that is going to give us some difficulty on both sides of the ball,” said Lyman Ward head coach Dwayne Thomas.
“We are putting all of our eggs in the basket and going out there to get a win on homecoming night.”
The Rangers has been depleted by injuries in 2012, as starting quarterback Charlie Bunteen returns to the starting lineup tomorrow night after sitting out the last two weeks.
Defensively, Lyman Ward is without linebacker Malcolm Griffith, who will sit out again this week.
“The injuries haven’t helped us too much,” Thomas said.
“But it gives other guys the opportunity to step up and I’ve been surprised how the guys have stayed in good spirits.”
If Lyman Ward loses tomorrow night, there is a slim chance of the squad making the playoffs.
The teams are set for a 7 p.m. kickoff Friday in Camp Hill.
