Football: Lakewood Ranch 35, Dixie Hollins 21

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Lakewood Ranch overcame two quick Dixie Hollins scores and got three touchdowns from Mac Hathaway in a 35-21 district win Friday night.

After the Mustangs were flagged for running into punter Ladarian Houston near midfield, the Rebels got a 12-yard run by Dana Harrington and a 21-yard run by Demondre Lambert to reach the Mustangs' 12. The Mustangs appeared to have Harrington stopped for a loss, but he threw to Lambert for a touchdown.

Dixie Hollins tackled the Mustangs punter at the 4-yard line and scored two plays later on Brandon Bell's 6-yard run.

But Hathaway scored on runs of 48, 36 and 11 yards out to rally Lakewood Ranch.

Officials called the game with 2:08 to play due to safety concerns. Two players were ejected in a first-quarter fight and another Rebel was tossed in the second half.
