Football: Clearwater Central Catholic 10, Lakeland Christian 3

LAKELAND — George Ohleyer caught a 43-yard touchdown from Nick Newton in the third quarter as Clearwater Central Catholic defeated Lakeland Christian 10-3 in a Class A-6 game on Friday.

Ohleyer's catch on what looked like a stop on third and long turned into the only touchdown of the game with 11.2 seconds left in the third.

The Vikings (0-2, 0-1) had a lengthy 16-play, 48-yard drive that got the 1,085 fans in Vikings Stadium on their feet.

With 5:40 left in the fourth quarter, the Marauders defense stopped the Vikings 32 yards short of the end zone.

"We missed a couple of plays that we needed to make to give us a chance to win, but I thought our guys fought hard tonight, and I thought our defense played really well," LCS coach Bobby Dan McGlohorn said.

The Marauders (2-0, 1-0) had 180 yards of total offense.

Vikings kicker Tyler Malony made a 32-yard field goal with 2:06 left in the third quarter to tie the score at 3-3.

Lightning in the area caused a 43-minute delay, and the sloppy conditions led to each team's offense getting off to a slow start.
