Football: Clearwater Central Catholic 20, Lakeland Christian 6

LAKELAND – On a wet, slippery night at Vikings Stadium, turnovers were the story as 1,347 fans saw Clearwater Central Catholic defeat Lakeland Christian 20-6.

Neither team turned the ball over in the first half, as Lakeland Christian took a 3-0 lead. The second half was a different story as Lakeland Christian freshman quarterback Christian Alexander had a night to forget.

Two Alexander fumbles in the third quarter led to 13 Marauders points. The first came on an option play inside Lakeland Christian's own red zone; that set up senior running back Justin Goodloe's 11-yard touchdown run two plays later.

The Vikings turned the ball over four times in the quarter; Alexander's second fumble was plucked out of the air by Clearwater Central Catholic defensive lineman Tony Olmo, who raced 26 yards for a score to give the Marauders a 13-3 lead.

Lakeland Christian closed within a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, but senior running back Blair Vaughn broke free for a 55-yard touchdown with 4:22 left to clinch it for CCC.

The Marauders (1-1) forced seven fumbles and recovered five. CCC travels again next week to play at Hudson.
