TAMPA — Five players combined for seven touchdowns Friday afternoon as Carrollwood Day defeated Ocala Christian 46-6.
Deuce Gruden opened scoring with a 2-yard touchdown to Dillon Floyd. The Patriots (6-1) scored three more TDs and led 27-0 at the half. CDS held the Crusaders (0-5), who had a roster of only 11 players, to 64 yards in the first half.
"We want a team that can win the game by 40 or win the game by a safety," CDS coach Lane McLaughlin said. "I wish we had (that loss) back, but we have a young team that has played a lot of ball, and I want to see (Bishop McLaughlin) again in the conference championship."
The Patriots had 505 yards of total offense with sophomore Robert Davis rushing for 136 yards and two touchdowns. Nate Lewis added 90 yards and two TDs.
