Football: Admiral Farragut 41, Lake Highland Prep 20

ST. PETERSBURG —Admiral Farragut (5-2) came out in the opening quarter a little sluggish Friday night, but midway through found its groove en route to a 41-20 victory over Lake Highland Prep (0-7).

Dalton Collins led the way, rushing for four touchdowns, including a pair of 61-yarders, and 173 yards on six carries. Napoleon Maxwell (161 yards, five carries) also helped the cause by rushing for an additional two touchdowns of 90 and 54 yards.

In the first quarter, Collins dropped back to pass but could not find an open receiver and raced untouched to put AFA up 7-0. Lake Highland Prep came up with a score of its own as Ryan Krumins scored from 11 yards out late in the second quarter.

The Blue Jackets went on a 21-point tear as Collins and Maxwell gutted the LHP defense for long touchdown runs. Collins added touchdowns of 29 and 25 yards in the third.

LHP's Scott Duncan connected with Krumins on a 45-yard score to pull Lake Highland within 34-14, then Collins pushed the score to 41-13.

Krumins added an 80-yard touchdown run in the fourth.

"We had to go back to the drawing board and we also have a lot of work to do," AFA coach Ryan Hearn said. "The next several weeks will be extremely important for us."
