Berkeley Prep 39, Lakeland Christian 17

LAKELAND — Lakeland Christian's early 10-point lead wasn't enough to put away Berkeley Prep, and the Vikings lost on homecoming night in front of a crowd of 1,585.

LCS, which was averaging 114 passing yards going into the game, was held to just 10. Quarterback, and homecoming king, Ryan Parrish didn't complete his first pass until 4:20 left in the third quarter.

Parrish did give the Vikings an early 7-0 lead with a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Daniel Hughes' 36-yard field goal with 4:52 left in the quarter put the Vikings ahead, 10-0.

Berkeley Prep (4-1) then scored the next 39 points. The Buccaneers' rushing attack totaled 264 yards, with sophomore Nelson Agholor getting 182 of that on 12 attempts.

Agholor ran for three touchdowns and caught a 19-yard pass for another. Two of his TDs came in the second quarter, when Berkeley Prep outscored LCS 25-0 to take control of the game. Berkeley quarterback Destin Nichols passed for two touchdowns and ran for one.

The Vikings' final touchdown came with 20 seconds left when C.T. Thomas capped a 95-yard drive with a 4-yard touchdown run.
