The Lathrop Lions won their first-ever contest at the Midgets Division this past Sunday, throttling the West Coast Jr. Eagles of Stockton 36-0 at Lathrop High.

The Peewees and Cadets, meanwhile, are still perfect in the NorCal Youth Football Alliance. The Jr. Peewees fell to 1-2 after a 12-6 defeat.

Quarterback Jason King had a hand in three touchdown plays in the Midget contest, scoring twice on the run and throwing for another. Miguel Sequeira added a TD on the ground and one through the air.

Daniel Lesley was on the receiving end of the biggest play from scrimmage, a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown. Steven Johnson also hauled in a touchdown, while JoJo Kissoon rushed for one.

Up next is the Bay Area Spartans at Lathrop High this Saturday. The Tiny Mites kick off action at 8 a.m.

Raylene Carter-Belvine contributed an electric 48-yard TD run. Quarterback Tyrone Vickers passed for 104 yards and completed five of nine attempts.

The Lions will encounter a Bay Area Spartans team out of Oakland that is also 3-0 on the season.
