Football: East Lake 41, Sarasota Riverview 20

EAST LAKE — East Lake clinched at least a runnerup spot in Class 8A-7 with a 41-20 win over Sarasota Riverview on Friday.

Pete DiNovo had a standout performance, completing 21 of 31 passes for 375 yards and six scores. His top target was Artavis Scott, who caught nine passes for 189 yards and four touchdowns.

East Lake opened the scoring on a 6-yard pass from DiNovo to Scott. Riverview got within one point on the following possession with a 3-yard run by Sam Johnson, but that is as close as it would get.

"It was exciting to clinch a playoff spot, but we've got a lot of work to do in order to advance further this year," coach Bob Hudson said.

East Lake (6-2, 2-0) extended the lead with 29- and 14-yard touchdown passes from DiNovo to Scott. In the second quarter DiNovo threw a 35-yard touchdown to George Campbell and a 9-yard touchdown to Chris DePaolo. He added a 37-yard touchdown pass to Scott in the third quarter.
