LARGO — Led by senior quarterback Donovan Hale, Largo rolled at home. Hale impressed from the start, gaining 169 yards in directing the Packers’ attack. John Clark had 136 yards rushing and two touchdowns and Dakarai Allen lead the team with 84 receiving yards and snagged two touchdowns. Largo outgained the Vikings 390-28. Largo had three touchdowns in the first half, and three touchdowns and a safety in the second half. The Packers gave first-year Northeast head coach Jeremy Frioud, a long-time assistant at Largo, a rough homecoming. Coach Marcus Paschal won his inaugural game leading the Packers.

Drive of the game: Largo all but put the game out of reach in the second quarter. After driving down deep into the red zone, Hale scrambled to keep a fourth-and-goal play alive and lofted a touchdown pass to Allen.

Stars of the game: Hale, Clark and Allen had big games. With Hale scrambling and directing the spread offense from the pistol, Clark’s swift running and sure-handed grabs by Allen, the Packers faced little resistance.

Stats of the game: The Packers held the Vikings to zero first downs in the second half, adjusting to the muggy conditions.

Final word: “I’m big on detail and we didn’t take care of the little things. But other than that, we have some things to build on. So far so good. We’ll be back in the morning, break down some film and next up is East Lake.” Marcus Paschal, Largo coach
