Hubbard 33 Lane Tech 0 in first round of CPS football playoffs
Hubbard Sophomore playmaker Steele Collins (#40- RB) and kicker Carlos Gonzalez shake hands in the sidelines.
I just got the final of the Hubbard Lane first round playoff game: 33-0 Hubbard. It was a worse off score than I predicted. I predicted Hubbard would win by 21. I'm not really sure what happened. As I get more details of the game, I will try to add it to this post or in the comments section. Or if anyone was at teh gaem, feel free to comment.
All I know is that Lane's season is suddenly over. After winning the city championship last year, Lane is out of the city playoffs and with a 4-5 record will not participate in the state playoffs. Lane needed a victory and they would get in. Instead, they fail to make the state playoffs for the first time since the mid 1990's. Lane ends the season with two shutout losses. Last week they lost to Simeon 14-0 and now to Hubbard 33-0.
Meanwhile, Hubbard is in a complete roll. Hubbard ends the regular reason with a 7-2 record and will be seeded somewhere around 12-21 in the 6A playoffs - where they will have a winnable first round game.
