LAKEVIEW — The Lakeview Wildcats will host the Morley Stanwood Mohawks to open the 2013 football season on Aug. 29.

That’s one of just four home games at Kos Field this year as the Wildcats (5-4 in 2012) look to make the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

The Wildcats’ schedule has them facing the same opponents in the same week as last season, just at opposite locations.

Lakeview snapped a four-game losing streak to Morley Stanwood with a 24-8 opening road win a year ago. The Wildcats will look to start the year with a win for the second straight season against the Mohawks (3-6 in 2012).

Lakeview also snapped a five-game losing streak a year ago against rival Central Montcalm. The Wildcats defeated the Hornets 26-14 on a Saturday homecoming game in October. The rivals will meet this year on Oct. 11 in Stanton.

Homecoming this year is again on a Saturday for Lakeview. This year the Wildcats face Hesperia on Oct. 5 with a 1 p.m. kick off.

Lakeview’s other home games are Sept. 13 against Newaygo and Oct. 18 against White Cloud.

Other road games for the Wildcats are Holton (Sept. 6), Chippewa Hills (Sept. 20), Reed City (Sept. 27) and Big Rapids (Oct. 25).

Lakeview lost to Big Rapids 28-14 last year in the final game of the season. The loss kept the Wildcats from the postseason.

Two of Lakeview’s losses last year were by one touchdown and one by two touchdowns.

Lakeview earned playoff bids seven consecutive seasons from 2000-06.

Lakeview has gone 23-31 (.426 winning percentage) the past six seasons. They went 38-21 (.644) the six years prior.

All nine games are Central State Activities Association games.
