Football: East Lake 52, Sarasota 38

The visiting Eagles (4-3, 1-0) jumped out to a commanding 26-point lead in the first half and went on to win 52-38 Friday night for their second straight victory.

Pete DiNovo threw for more than 200 yards and four touchdowns. His top target was Artavis Scott, who had three receptions for scores, all longer than 30 yards. Tyler Lane also scored two rushing touchdowns, and Devin Abraham returned a kick for a touchdown to put the Eagles ahead by four touchdowns early in the third quarter.

Eagles coach Bob Hudson rested most of his starters after that. The Sailors rallied with three late scores before Hudson put his starters back in to run out the clock.

"We looked real sharp early on and were able to hang on in the end," Hudson said.
