Football: Lennard 35, St. Petersburg Catholic 14

RUSKIN — Lennard extended its record-setting start to 4-0 by winning its Class 2A, District 5 opener, 35-14 over St. Pete Catholic.

"It's taken us four years to build it to this point," Lennard coach George Edington said.

The Longhorns rallied twice and pulled away thanks to Tevin Abbney, who gained 192 yards and scored four times .

"That's what he can do," Edington said of his back, who scored on runs of 7, 7, 4 and 6 yards.

On the third play of the game, the Barons' Ryan Green broke loose for a 79-yard scoring run.

Lennard then marched 70 yards on nine plays, capped by Abbney's first TD.

After Todd Macon's 7-yard run put the Barons back up, Kaylab Phillips had a 14-yard TD run and Fred Porter added the two-point conversion for a 21-14 Lennard lead.
