ST. PETERSBURG — The Lakewood offense came out a little flat Friday, but the defense was solid in a 46-0 shutout of Seminole.
The Spartans gave up 13 total yards in the first half along with one first down but led just 8-0. In the second quarter the Spartans exploded for 24 points. Jocqui Ellison scorched the Warhawks with a 65-yard touchdown, then Zamarie Johnson broke free for a 40-yard score. The defense kept the heat on with a blocked punt that set up Shaquill Griffin's TD. Rodney Adams hauled in a 59-yard TD from Tracy Johnson as the Spartans went up 34-0. Johnson added two TD passes, completing 10 of 14 for 168 yards.
"We really played together tonight as a team, but we still have a long way to go," Lakewood coach Cory Moore said. "Also we were missing nine starters."
