Players enjoyed the moment, as they were able to play against someone other than their teammates. "It's exciting. We were all excited. To see someone else, you want to go after them," running back Paul Brown said. Lehman took the field with some nerves in mind. Head coach Todd Raymond described the team as "jit- tery" during warm-ups. The unease extended into the initial scripted play portion of the scrimmage. Yet, when the Lobos got a chance to play in a simulated half, the nerves dissolved, with players showing their much-awaited potential many fans wanted. Lehman took little time to prove itself on the field. The Lobos stormed 75 yards on their first drive, with rtm- ning back/quarterback Paul Matthews capping off the drive with an eight-yard touchdown run to give Lehman a 7-0 lead. The fast pace was the theme of the night. Raymond wanted to keep the tempo on the Canyon Lake defense. He was pleased at the way the Lobos wore down the Hawk defense. "Offensive line did a good job. I'm proud of the way our kids responded," Raymond said. "We wore them down. They struggled with our fast pace."

Raymond was impressed at the physicality of the defense, which held Canyon Lake to only one touchdown in the simnlated half. While a few big plays were conceded, he was pleased overall, "Super proud of kids defensively," Raymond said. "They felt good about themselves. Our camaraderie as a team was much better than it was."
