Football: Carrollwood Day 40, Cambridge Christian 20

TAMPA — If there were any doubt about which 2A-5 team was lining up for the second playoff spot behind Indian Rocks Christian, Carrollwood Day settled it Friday with a 40-20 win over Cambridge Christian. The Patriots' win and Northside Christian's loss to Canterbury puts CDS in the playoffs for the second year in a row.

The Patriots (6-3, 4-1) got it done with defense Friday. Lancers quarterback Garrett Young posed the biggest threat. He accounted for 248 yards of offense but was stymied in critical situations. On the third drive of the first half, the Patriots pushed the Lancers (4-4, 2-3) back 18 yards to set up a short field, which they scored on.

On the last drive of the first half, Cambridge reached the Patriots' 10 but Mike Smith forced a fumble, which Dominic Cuono took 82 yards for the score to make it 20-7. Then on the first drive in the second half, the Lancers were at the Patriots' 3. Young was stuffed for a turnover on downs.

"(Young) was their biggest threat and we shut him down," Cuono said. "It was a great game, everybody hitting hard."

Young was 9-for-23 for 174 yards and two TDs. The Patriots' Elias Earley had 53 yards rushing and a TD as well as a 55-yard sideline catch from Taylor King to put the Patriots up 33-7.
