WEEKI WACHEE — Mount Dora has been the cream of the crop in Class 4A, District 4 for years, and in its first trip to Weeki Wachee, the Hurricanes established that dominance over its newest rival.

The Hornets fell 57-12 to Mount Dora despite trailing only 23-12 at the end of the third quarter.

The teams combined for 250 yards on 27 penalties, including 145 yards from Mount Dora (4-2) alone. But the holes dug by the Hurricanes were overcome by explosive offensive plays by quarterback Bobby LaRouca (10-of-14, 153 yards, two touchdowns, one interception; six carries, 97 yards, one touchdown) and tailback Jordan Porter (12 carries, 122 yards, one touchdown; three catches, 24 yards).

The injuries for Weeki Wachee (1-5), already without starting quarterback David Tinch, continued to mount. Running back Jon King (shoulder) left the game, and fullback/linebacker Andrew Vreeland injured his thumb.

Marcus Allen continued to be a bright spot for the Hornets. He had a 61-yard touchdown called back because of a clipping penalty in the first half, but still went on to rush 14 times for 56 yards and complete 8-of-19 passes for 59 yards and one touchdown. King scored both Weeki Wachee touchdowns before getting injured.
