Football: Bradenton Christian 20, Cambridge 6

TAMPA —Cambridge's offense mustered a season-low 156 yards in a loss to Bradenton Christian.

The loss was the Lancers' first of the season and showed how much they miss quarterback Garrett Young, who broke his collarbone in Week 1. Tristan Wood threw four interceptions.

"You could say we're missing (Young) pretty bad," Cambridge coach Bob Dare said. "We've got a lot of young guys on the team. And when they came at us with the pressure they did, we struggled to deal with it."

The Lancers took the lead in the second quarter on Trevor Smith's 40-yard field goal. The junior added another three points in the third, but two other kicks were blocked.

The difference for Bradenton Christian was moving Sinclair Laskett from wideout to tailback in the second half. He ran for three touchdowns and 151 yards.
