Football: Lakewood 14, Dixie Hollins 7

ST. PETERSBURG — Lakewood overcame a slow start and sloppy play, breaking a tie with 1:12 to play to defeat Dixie Hollins 14-7.

Alphonso Evans twice led the Spartans on late drives. The quarterback threw a 31-yard bomb to Sermetrius Dennis with two seconds left in the first half and the winning, 6-yard touchdown to Dennis Pugh. Evans also scrambled out of several collapsing pockets to keep plays and drives alive, but had his struggles, throwing two interceptions. He finished with 205 yards on 18 of 33 passing.

"We started a little flat," said Evans. "Coach (Cory Moore) got a little upset with me …so I said "I'm going to pick it up, so everybody else pick it up."'

The Rebels drove the ball into Spartans' territory in the final minute, but their comeback efforts ended when defensive back Robert Quarterman intercepted a deep pass by Dana Harrington.
