Football: Carrollwood Day 61, Northside Christian 14

TAMPA — Carrollwood Day beat Northside Christian 61-14 in its home opener Friday afternoon.

The Patriots blocked a punt in the first quarter, and the offense took over at the Mustangs' 8. Robert Davis put the Patriots (2-1) on the board with an 8-yard run.

Davis had a 90-yard touchdown later in the quarter, finishing with 101 yards in the quarter. He sat out the second half to avoid injury.

"He banged his shoulder up (earlier) and on a day like today, he could have had two or three hundred yards but you know, when you are up by so many points you don't take a chance on kids getting hurt," Patriots coach Lane McLaughlin said.

Northside (0-3) responded with a 70-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, but the Patriots offense clicked again as quarterback Deuce Gruden passed to Dillon Floyd for a 35-yard touchdown.
