Is this the week the Seahawks earn a Liberty District victory?
Is this the week South Lakes High School's football team breaks its Liberty District losing skid? The odds say yes.

After heartbreaking Homecoming loss, Seahawks still searching for Liberty District win.
South Lakes High School travels to Langley Friday night for another shot at breaking into the conference win column in 2012. South Lakes (2-5 overall, 0-4 Liberty District) came close to defeating Madison at home last Friday.
