Football: Jefferson 47, Palm Bay Bayside 13

TAMPA — Class 3A Jefferson dominated the line of scrimmage and routed Class 5A Palm Bay Bayside 47-13 Thursday.

"Our O-line and D-line did a great job tonight," Jefferson coach Mike Fenton said. "We started by running the ball real well, and that just opened up our passing game, too."

Demetrious Russell rushed for 203 yards, and the line gave quarterback Quentin Williams enough time to throw for 146 yards and five touchdowns, three to Chris Moore covering 34, 29 and 26 yards. Andre Davis and Charles Booth caught the other TDs.

With the help of some of Jefferson's 21 penalties, the Bears managed two rushing touchdowns in the first half but were stymied by the Dragons defense over the final two quarters.
