West Point junior place kicker Omar Lemus only needed one chance to successfully convert a field goal.
In his first high school career field goal attempt, Lemus was perfect from the right hash line as he booted a strong, high 25-yard field goal with 7:52 left in the game to cap a West Point 24-point second-half rally as the Green Wave celebrated its second consecutive District 1-5A win over Lake Cormorant, 24-21, at Hamblin Stadium in West Point.
The 25-yard field goal capped an 11-play offensive series but was only an exclamation point in an exciting, resurgent second-half for the Wave.
"We're a bunch of fighters," Head Coach Chris Chambless said. "When we're down, we are not out. It was a tale of two halves again, but the bottom line is when you have your focus on the goal, you don't see obstacles. We didn't have that focus in the first half."
