The one team standing between Lynbrook and a county title is the one team it couldn't beat in the regular season this year.
Tonight, the top-seeded Owls (9-1) will look to avenge their (8-2) in a match-up for the county title at Hofstra's Shuart Stadium.
"Lawrence is an excellent ball club — they're playing their best football, but so are we," said Lynbrook coach Steve Locicero. "So I think it's gonna be another great match-up. It's gonna be exciting, and we'll see where it goes."
Lynbrook is coming off a 54-20 win over Plainedge in the semifinal, a game in which running back Travis Lock ran for 253 yards and five touchdowns. Lawrence also won big, 49-14, against Hewlett last Friday in its semifinal match-up.
The Owls will be looking to contain Lawrence quarterback Samson Bialostok, who has had success both passing and running the ball this year. Brothers Tyler and Ryan Fredericks have also contributed big numbers to the Golden Tornadoes' running game. Lawrence is coached by Pat Pizzarelli.
"I think it's going to be a great game," Pizzarelli said. "They're a great team, they're coached well and they've got good kids. Most of their games, they plowed over their opponents. We have to play our best to stay in the game with them and hopefully we will."
On Oct. 23, Lawrence mounted a 23-14 lead against Lynbrook before the Owls mounted a comeback, cutting the lead to one point and having a few passes fall incomplete in the game's final seconds.
This year's championship game is also a rematch of last year's, when Lawrence defeated Lynbrook, 41-7.
Lynbrook is hoping to be on the winning side this time.
"We have never been more focused and ready to play any game of the season," Locicero said.
The game will be played at 7 p.m.
