TAMPA — Carrollwood Day suited up for its homecoming game Friday against Canterbury short-handed. It hardly showed as the Patriots rolled over Canterbury (1-5, 1-4) 40-19 thanks to standout performances from Andy Embody and Max Frankel.
"I've been prepared all week, all year for something like this," Embody said.
Embody caught only seven passes but three were touchdowns and two were interceptions. He also handled punting duty, was a force on defense and rushed for 62 yards, highlighted by a 34-yarder where he stiff-armed a defender. Embody totaled 172 yards of offense. Frankel was a terror on defense, recording five solo tackles, a couple for loss.
The Patriots (5-1, 3-1) led 33-7 at the half, when Embody intercepted a pass then scored a 46-yard touchdown on the next play.
