Week 1: Frustrating start for La Center

Wildcats know they will get better in the coming weeks

Not too many in La Center saw this one coming.

Even with virtually a brand new team, this was not expected.

“It was a frustrating game for the kids,” La Center coach John Lambert said, noting the loss was a combination of Ridgefield’s solid play and his squad’s mistakes.

La Center (0-1)

Week 1: Ridgefield 19, La Center 0

Next: vs. Woodland, 7 p.m. Friday at La Center High School

“We had a hard time tackling. Our fundamentals weren’t great. We’re going to get better at that,” Lambert said.

La Center, which has reached the Class 1A state semifinals the past two seasons, has 20 new starting players.

“Any time you have that, it’s a little more challenging,” Lambert said. “It’s a good learning experience. I don’t think there’s growth without failure.”

On defense, Lambert said Wyatt Dodson made a huge impact. Known as a great running back, this was his first start at safety. Lambert said Dodson made several big plays.

On offense, nothing really stood out, the coach said.

“(The Spudders defense) made some nice plays. And we made too many execution errors,” Lambert said. “It’s something we can build on.”
