But a missed two-point conversion as time ran out handed the Polars a 27-26 loss. At the end of the game head coach Charles Adams III, assured the team that if it did not ditch its spirit of commitment and determination it could anticipate better results on the Southwest High School Lakers turf, Friday Sept. 6.
With true grit to match last year's record and the game strategy in place, the Polars made their move on the very first play of the game against Southwest – an onside kick.
As North's Martice Clark kicked off, he squibbed a 10 yarder, which slithered through the surprised grasp of Southwest's Chris Calland, and allowed North's Dallas Griffith to make the recovery and set up the Polars quarterback, Tyler Johnson for the first touchdown of the game. Johnson hit Malik Mathews for the first of seven touchdowns in the game for North. North receiver, Kyon Thomas, also hauled in a touchdown catch.
Lakers starting quarterback, Al-Jureau Ray threw for four touchdowns in a losing cause as the final score had the Polars on top 48 - 24.
