Carrollwood Day 56, Naples First Baptist 7; Strawberry Crest 32, Steinbrenner 27

Carrollwood Day 56
Naples First Baptist 7

At Carrollwood, quarterback Billy Embody put on a 24-minute clinic, passing for 298 yards and five touchdowns in the first half alone to lead the Patriots (7-0). Forced to also log time at free safety due to three player suspensions, Embody completed 12 of 13 passes in the first half, with only one interception.

Strawberry Crest 32, Steinbrenner 27: Strawberry Crest's first varsity win didn't come without a scare. The first-year Chargers beat fellow newbie Steinbrenner, but not before their defense stopped the Warriors in the red zone to end the game. The Chargers came back from a 19-12 halftime deficit to score two third-quarter touchdowns.

"It was great because all our kids worked hard and stayed positive," Strawberry Crest coach Todd Donahoe said. "We lost to them in Week 1, so it looks like we're going in the right direction."
