Cambridge 65, Lake Wales Vanguard 0

LAKE WALES — Cambridge (2-8) rolled to a 40-0 halftime lead and then finished off a rout of Lake Wales Vanguard, which was playing its first season.

"I'm as proud as heck of these kids who stuck with us," Vanguard coach Rich Vester said.

"We had 15 kids. They played hard. We had kids at positions they had never played before. We had a kid at quarterback who took his first snaps two days ago."

Vester said with 12 returning players, the team will work on offseason training and that the players are already talking about season.

Vanguard (1-9) had a modest scoring opportunity after a kickoff return to the Cambridge 35 by Bryant Godfrey, but lost possession on downs.

The Ledger

The Eagles (2-7, 1-3) snapped a six-game losing streak by beating the Raiders (3-6, 1-3) in a Class 5A-8 district game. Brandon took a 17-7 lead into the half and didn't look back.

    The Heater
