ST. PETERSBURG — Admiral Farragut, led by Todd Macon and Rayshawn Jenkins, defeated Bradenton Christian 38-22 to move to 5-1 in Class 2A, District 5.

Macon opened scoring with a 36-yard run in the first quarter and took an interception back 50 yards in the third quarter to help the Blue Jackets take control. Jenkins caught three passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns, including a 33-yarder from Colby Robinson late in the third.

AFA (7-1) got a strong performance from its defense, holding Bradenton Christian to 82 total yards. The Blue Jackets also got two defensive touchdowns, the second a 30-yard fumble return by Brad Hyman to put the game out of reach at 38-15.

"Defense tonight was the answer; two defensive touchdowns and good hits on their QB made a big difference for us," AFA coach Chris Miller said.
