A Constantly Improving Team

On Friday night the Football team took on Adam City’s football team in the homecoming football game. The Lions were looking for their first win of the year. They were also looking for their first touchdown of the year. Adam City jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead. Littleton responded making it 14-7. Adam city was up 21-7 at half time.

During half time homecoming royalty was announced. Sam Kail was king and Emily Sanders was queen.


Littleton held Adam City scoreless in the second half. They scored to make the score 21-14. With time about to expire, Littleton was driving down the field. It was 3rd down and Littleton got down close to the first down. Assuming they got the first down they ran up and spiked the ball to stop the clock. They however, had not gotten the first down and had just spiked the ball on 4th down, leading to a turnover on downs.

While they did not win the homecoming game, it was a vast improvement over previous games this season.
