Football: Lakewood 60, Lennard 26

ST. PETERSBURG — After a first half that saw Lennard stay with Lakewood (6-0, 5-0) step for step, the Spartans outscored the Longhorns 20-0 in the third quarter Friday en route to a 60-26 victory.

"We've got to start fast and not put ourselves in bad situations," Spartans coach Cory Moore said. "We like to be versatile on offense and be consistent running and passing."

Lakewood's offense racked up 511 yards led by Tracy Johnson, Rodney Adams and Marquez Valdes. Johnson threw for 299 yards and four scores while Adams caught four passes for 144 yards. Valdes pitched in with three catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns.

Johnson opened the scoring with a 19-yard pass to Valdes and a 17-yarder to Donterio Fowler.

The Longhorns (1-6, 1-5) came back with a pass from Pete Foret to Shannon Gaines.

Johnson found Tahrell Evans to open the second half and Gary Sherman intercepted a pass and returned it 27 yards for a 34-14 lead.
