PALM HARBOR — East Lake was able to contain Palm Harbor University despite being shown two distinct offensive schemes, and it coordinated a balanced attack.

Drive of the game: The Eagles’ most efficient drive came on their first opportunity to score. Senior running back Drew Couto began with a 16-yard run. On the next play, senior Carson Lydon broke off a 36-yard run. Then a Palm Harbor defender was nudged by a stiff arm from Lydon before Lydon scored.

Star of the game: Senior running back Stephen Charron’s 128 yards rushing accounted for nearly half of Palm Harbor’s total yards, and he scored the lone touchdown for his team.

Stats of the game: East Lake had six sacks, two by sophomore defensive tackle Jake Rosiek.

Final word: “When you get into a rivalry, you have to keep your focus on (the game), keep the emotional part out and let (the players) think about football. They did a good job, and they played pretty good.” — East Lake coach Bob Hudson
