Team of the Week: Goddard Lions

Posted: Updated:

The Goddard Lions shocked the state last Friday night handing Derby their first loss since 2015.

They took a 43-6 lead into halftime and never looked back beating the back-to-back Class 6A state champions 50-20. 

"Our game plan was to out physical them and we did. We started out strong and we finished the game strong," quarterback Blake Sullivan said.

Sullivan had six total touchdowns in the contest and the Lions are primed to make another push toward the state championship game this fall.

"We're now the hunted," head coach Scott Vang said after the game. "Everybody is going to be coming for us, we've got to come to work tomorrow and go back to work and be ready to play. Let's celebrate tonight and tomorrow it all starts all over again."

Goddard plays at Andover on Thursday night at 7.
