Football: Carrollwood Day 49, Faith Baptist 12

TAMPA — Carrollwood Day coach Lane McLaughlin took his players into the locker room  at halftime and dressed them down, verbally assaulting the Patriots in a tirade that could be heard loud and clear from outside.

“It was the loudest I’ve heard him yell in a long time,” receiver Dillon Floyd said.

McLaughlin was so heated after his team’s first-half performance, he had to sit down and collect himself.

“I almost popped a blood vessel,” McLaughlin said.

Thankfully McLaughlin didn’t need medical attention and his team responded as the Patriots scored 28 third-quarter points to blow past Faith Baptist (0-3) 49-12 Friday afternoon.

“It was our first home game and we wanted to do well for the fans but we came out flat,” Dillon said. “But we came out in the second half and showed Hillsborough County what we can do.”

Floyd caught a 19-yard pass to open the scoring in the first quarter and Robert Davis made it 14-0 on an 8-yard run off right tackle. But Carrollwood Day (2-1) led only 14-12 at the break after the Eagles’ Joel Nyembo blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone with less than a minute to play in the half.

“We got yelled at,” Floyd said. “But we deserved it, too.”

The Patriots’ big second half was fueled by four picks, including interception returns for touchdowns by Markeith Kilgo (17 yards) and Floyd (36). Patriots quarterback Deuce Gruden (8-of-18, 101 yards) passed for a pair of touchdowns and added another on a 1-yard sneak. Kilgo led all rushers with 55 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown in the fourth.
