Football: Carrollwood Day 56, Bradenton Christian 35

BRADENTON —A wild Class 2A, District 5 shootout resulted in a Carrollwood Day 56-35 victory over Bradenton Christian on Friday night.

"It was very fun," said quarterback Vidal Woodruff. "I've never been in a game like this in my life. We came out here and played hard. That's a really tough team. They're really good. They have a heck of a coaching (staff), and they have really good players."

Of course, Woodruff's line in the victory — 10-of-12 passing for 330 yards and five touchdowns — made it easier for the senior to grin following Friday's pivotal district clash.

The Patriots (6-1, 4-1) did damage early en route to building a seven-point halftime lead. Woodruff found an open Andy Embody for a 51-yard touchdown strike midway through the second quarter. CDS' Nate Lewis finished with a game-high 218 receiving yards.

Robert Davis tallied 151 rushing yards on 14 carries, including a 65-yard rumble to pay dirt for the Patriots. Davis, though, was limited as he's been hobbled the past few weeks with an injury. That meant Woodruff and the passing game were relied on, and he obliged with a five-TD effort as well as a rushing score late.
