RUSKIN — Before Thursday, Lennard had never opened a season with three straight wins, beaten Riverview or had a running clock in its favor. The fourth-year Longhorns accomplished two out of three. Lennard (3-0) led 35-7 at halftime, but the Sharks scored 21 after the break to avoid being on the wrong end of a running clock.
"We got sloppy; we got lackadaisical," Lennard coach George Edington said of his team's second-half effort.
Tevin Abney, who rushed for a game-high 111 yards on 18 carries, ran for three touchdowns in the first half. Quarterback Fred Porter added a 56-yard scoring run before lining up at receiver to catch a 59-yard touchdown.
Riverview halted Lennard's 35-point run with two touchdowns on back-to-back fumble returns.
