Football: Lennard 28, Strawberry Crest 24

RUSKIN — Quarterback Fred Porter scored from a yard out with 2 minutes 15 seconds left as Lennard posted its first-ever comeback victory, 28-24 over Class 2A, District 5 rival Strawberry Crest.

"Being a young program we haven't been able to do that," Lennard coach George Edington said.

The Chargers nearly pulled off a dramatic finish of their own. In the final minute, Donnardo Fields caught a 15-yard fourth-down pass tipped by teammate Karel Hamilton. But backup quarterback Brandon Reaves was sacked by Abraham Esteva and Reaves' next fourth-down pass fell incomplete on fourth and 24.

Trailing 24-13, Lennard's Kelton Halback blocked a punt and Daniel Faison recovered in the end zone on the last play of the third quarter. Lennard pulled within three on Porter's conversion run.

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.
