While Lompoc may not dominate the line of scrimmage in Friday's CIF Western Division semifinal contest, the Braves do need to win the battle upfront in order to have a chance of knocking off a Chaminade. The Eagles are ranked 13th in the state by Maxpreps.com.
Lompoc has rushed for over four thousand yards this year with over 50 touchdowns on the ground. If they can control the tempo, the Braves feel that they will be in the game in the fourth quarter where anything can happen.
Game time is 7 p.m. from West Hills.
