Football: King 48, Leto 3

TAMPA — A rain delay may have put a damper on King's homecoming night turnout, but it had no ill-effect on the field as the Lions were all over Leto 48-3.

King jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the first half, thanks to its running attack. Junior running back Greg Thompson ran for 112 yards on six carries, and Donnell Taylor chipped in for another 85 yards. The Lions gained 232 total yards on the ground.

In the second, junior Javontee Brice returned a Leto punt 85 yards for a touchdown. The Lions then added two more rushing touchdowns and a late touchdown pass from backup quarterback Paul Arfaras to Kim Jackson. The King defense also made huge plays. Defensive back Dominick Kelly stepped in front of two errant Leto passes and returned both for touchdowns.
