Football: No. 2 Lakes dumps MV, will face No. 1 Bellevue in quarterfinals

Bring on Bellevue.

Lakes High thumped Mountain View 28-0 in the first round of the Class 3A football state playoffs Friday night in Lakewood, setting up a showdown between the two nationally-ranked teams.

Second-ranked Lakes will host three-time defending state champion and top-ranked Bellevue in the quarterfinals at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harry E. Lang Stadium.

“We’re excited,” Lancers running back Levonte Littlejohn said. “Oh, yeah, real excited.”

Not only is the game a matchup of two highly-rated teams – Bellevue (11-0) is No. 14 and Lakes (11-0) is No. 18 in’s national rankings – it’s a rematch of last season’s state semifinals. The Wolverines thumped Lakes 35-7 on the way to their eighth state title since 2001.

Lakes has been itching for revenge since then. Before the Lancers could look forward to Bellevue, they had to handle the Thunder.

That didn’t take long.

Running back Levonte Littlejohn broke free for a 65-yard touchdown scamper, breaking at least six tackles, on the first play from scrimmage. Littlejohn added a pair of 17-yard touchdown runs in the first half, staking the Lancers to a 21-0 lead at halftime.

“I got past the line of scrimmage, then had to make some moves,” Littlejohn said of the long scoring run. “When it’s five on one, you’ve got to do something. Then the downfield blocking opened up.”
