Football: Largo 42, Lakewood Ranch 22

LARGO — Largo (6-2, 4-0) won the Class 6A, District 7 title and extended its district win streak to 26 games, defeating Lakewood Ranch (4-4, 3-1) 42-22 Friday.

Packers cornerback Cordell Hudson got off to a fast start, intercepting Lakewood Ranch quarterback Jeren Kowalewski on the third play from scrimmage and returning it 30 yards for the TD. Running back Harry Brown took a handoff 41 yards for a touchdown on Largo's third possession for a 14-0 lead. Brown finished with 138 yards and three touchdowns.

"We wanted to play physical and run the football because we read in the paper that their offensive line is better than ours, so we took that as a challenge," Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said.

Largo ran 34 times for 260 yards and five touchdowns.

In the second quarter, Largo's Raheem Harvey received a 5-yard curl route from quarterback Juwan Brown, making a defender miss on his way down to the 1. Running back Derrick Doss punched it in two plays later.
