Colchester fought its way into the win column last Friday night after a tough 32-21 victory over South Burlington. 

After a soggy back-and-forth battle, the Lakers folllowed up a Robbie Davis pick-six with a goalline stand en route to the win. 

The Lakers were led by a balanced ground game, racking up 281 total yards on the night, including a 180-yard explosion off just 12 carries by Quentin Hoskins. Bailey Olson also found his way to paydirt twice off two long scores, including an 85-yard kickoff return. 

Colchester will look to keep the ball rolling when it travels to Milton on Friday night for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
