Football: Jesuit 47, Lennard 0

RUSKIN — Jesuit could not be stopped by rain, or by Lennard on either side of the ball. The Longhorns had zero total yards until the final play two plays when they broke runs for positive yardage.

The Tigers (4-2, 4-1) shined on special teams. Travis Johnson ran 90 yards for a score negated by a flag. On his next turn he danced back 15 yards, got to the other side of the field with a couple of stiff-arms and turned it up 55 yards for a score. Reggie Brown put up nearly 150 yards in the first half.

Lennard (0-5, 0-3) had a chance early to stay close. Down by 13, the Longhorns returned a kickoff to the 50 yard line but the good field position was pushed back by a personal foul penalty. Cornerback William Hood picked Jesuit's first attempt at a pass and returned it to midfield, the first time Lennard crossed into Jesuit territory.
