Lakeshore football lost its third straight game, falling 27-7 at unbeaten Battle Creek Lakeview on Friday.

Lakeshore (2-4) is in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997. The Lancers can’t qualify automatically, and will need to win their final three games to have any chance at postseason play.

Lakeshore’s lone touchdown came on a 10-yard pass from Jimmy Gillette to Grant Ruddell in the second quarter, which tied the contest at seven. Ruddell finished with seven catches for 64 yards.

Lakeview (6-0) was led by Jackson Kitchen, who rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns.

The Spartans also scored on an interception return and a blocked punt return.

Zeke Rohl carried 15 times for 83 yards for the Lancers.
