Football: Cambridge 36, Northside Christian 7

TAMPA — Friday's Class 2A, District 5 matchup between Cambridge and Northside Christian was essentially a no-frills, consistent offensive attack by the Lancers (3-1, 2-1), who prevailed 36-7.

Cambridge tallied 239 yards and two touchdowns via the ground, with Lancers quarterback Phillip Johnson adding 136 yards and two touchdowns on 6-of-20 passing. Northside Christian's lone touchdown came in the game's waning moments when the Lancers' starters were out.

Mustangs quarterback Max Massengill completed just 1-of-7 for 57 yards and an interception. On its final two drives, Northside (0-4, 0-3) did move the ball well, but any ground gained was usually negated by penalties. Massengill did most of the heavy lifting late, rushing for 45 yards on those last drives.
