TAMPA — In Carrollwood Day's first football game in school history, the Patriots got coach Lane McLaughlin his first win.
Led by junior quarterback Billy Embody, the Patriots accumulated more than 500 yards of offense. Embody was 14 for 23 for 308 yards and four touchdowns.
Leading 28-27 with just less than eight minutes left, the Patriots were facing third-and-5. After appearing to be sacked, Embody connected with junior Matt Monteilh for a 50-yard touchdown.
"(Embody) made a lot of plays like that in six-man last year," McLaughlin said.
After a turnover by Leesburg First Academy, Monteilh ran 25 yards for a score. Along with Darius Bing, the two rushed for 122 yards and had 255 receiving.
