Football: Berkeley Prep 38, Lakeland Victory Christian 12

LAKELAND — Lakeland Victory Christian's Demeitre Brim was again unable to play this week and his team suffered.

Brim, the only quarterback on the roster and a commit to Virginia, remained out with a broken jaw and could only watch as his team fell 38-12 to Berkeley Prep.

Victory Christian had no answer for the swift rushing moves of Nelson Agholor. Agholor compiled 102 yards on the ground and two rushing touchdowns — in the first quarter.

Agholor finished with 125 yards rushing and 20 yards through the air, including a receiving touchdown.

Where Berkeley triumphed the Crusaders faltered. Going into the half Victory Christian had just 12 yards rushing on 17 attempts.

Agholor made the Victory defense adjust, and that's when Bucs quarterback Destin Nichols came alive. In the second quarter Nichols threw for 92 yards and three touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns came against broken coverage — one to a wide-open Agholor on a wheel route and a quick screen to Christian Hardegree, who went 42 yards breaking just one arm-tackle attempt.

It wasn't until Berkeley put its starters to rest that Victory had any success.
