The Lions return to action Friday after a COVID-19-induced cancellation last week to face the ninth-ranked team among Class A private schools. It’s the beginning of a brutal stretch in which LCA will play four ranked teams over a five-week stretch.
The Golden Bears’ only loss was to defending state champ Prince Avenue, who LCA will play in a month. In the only previous meeting, Holy Innocents’ beat the Lions 42-6 last fall.
LCA has struggled early, losing back-to-back games against competitors with whom they were evenly matched.
