Football: Carrollwood Day 54, Cambridge 35

TAMPA — In a game filled with explosive plays, one explosive player stood out.

Carrollwood Day's Robert Davis scored five touchdowns to help the Patriots outlast Cambridge in a 54-35 shootout Friday night.

Neither team could sustain much on defense as the teams combined for 846 yards of offense and 12 touchdowns.

Carrollwood Day (5-3, 3-3) scored touchdowns on its first four possessions.

Davis scored his first touchdown on a 5-yard run, which came between passing scores of 15 and 55 yards from Deuce Gruden to Andy Embody.

The Lancers (5-3, 4-3) made it 26-14 midway through the second quarter after Phillip Johnson found Robbie Robertson for a 22-yard touchdown, but Cambridge could get no closer.

Davis put the game out of reach in the third quarter after scoring on a pair of 60-yard plays (one on an interception, the other on a run) to finish with 250 rushing yards on 22 carries.

Despite his individual performance, Davis was still only concerned with the what the team has to do going forward.

"We are just focusing on finishing the season with five straight wins," Davis said. "We know to make the playoffs we need to at least finish 7-3."

Embody finished with two receptions for 70 yards and two scores and added a third touchdown on a 28-yard run.

Johnson finished with 203 passing yards and three scores for Cambridge while teammate Brandon Park added 128 yards of offense (64 rushing, 64 receiving) and two touchdowns.
