Football: Cambridge 68, Admiral Farragut 45

TAMPA — Two Cambridge seniors lead an offensive explosion that knocked 2011 state finalist Admiral Farragut out of the playoffs in a 68-45 stunner.

In their last game as Lancers, Brandon Park and Robbie Robertson combined for 10 TDs and 396 receiving yards. Each senior also had an interception and combined for 145 rushing yards.

Farragut (8-2, 6-2) couldn't keep up with the aerial attack of Cambridge (6-4, 4-4), led by sophomore Garrett Young's 419 yards on 21-of-28 passing and seven TDs. Todd Macon had touchdown runs of 42 and 37 yards, but was otherwise limited by the Cambridge defense. He finished with 137 yards on 17 carries, and Kevon Woods added 113 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

For the second year in a row, Cambridge coach Bob Dare fooled the Admiral Farragut defense with the same trick play. Park pretended to go to the sideline, but stayed in bounds. Young tossed him the ball, and he went 81 yards untouched for a touchdown that put the Lancers up 18 heading into halftime.

"Everything seemed to click — I don't think anything we called in the first half didn't work," Dare said. "Those two were the playmakers. It was pretty obvious."
