Football: Lecanto 24, Weeki Wachee 7

WEEKI WACHEE — The Hornets' first home game season didn't go according to plan as Lecanto (1-1) won 24-7 Friday night.

Lecanto scored on its first drive. Three plays into the game, junior quarterback Christian Barber connected on a 55-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Marcic who sprinted past the Weeki Wachee defense for a 7-0 advantage.

The Hornets got some good fortune as they recovered a muffed Lecanto punt at the 19-yard line. They would convert off the turnover as Hornet quarterback David Tinch threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jon King for their first touchdown at home.

But that was the only score for Weeki Wachee (1-1) as it only mustered 58 yards total. One bright spot for Weeki Wachee was that it committed two penalties compared to Lecanto's 16.
