Football: Central 10, Lecanto 7

BROOKSVILLE — Central survived 16 penalties and last-minute mistakes to survive in a 10-7 homecoming victory over Lecanto.

Bears quarterback Josh Burkhart connected with senior tight end Josh Colon for a 13-yard score just two minutes into the second quarter for the game's only touchdown. The play was set up by a blocked punt by senior Central (2-7) defensive lineman Jordan Valentine. A PAT by sophomore kicker Brandon Miller gave Central a 10-0 lead.

Just minutes before, late in the first quarter, Miller scored his team's only other points when he made a 31-yard field goal.

Those 10 points proved enough, however, on a night that saw the Panthers offense commit four turnovers, all fumbles.

Lecanto (2-6) got on the scoreboard with just over a minute remaining in the game when a 34-yard field goal attempt was blocked by sophomore defensive end Christian Sain. Panthers defensive back James Anderson recovered the blocked kick and returned it 70 yards for a score.

Junior running back Jeremy Williams led the Bears with 34 yards on 18 carries. Burkhart added 58 yards passing.
