Football: Northeast 29, Dixie Hollins 12

ST. PETERSBURG — Dual-threat quarterback Ryan Davis accounted for 202 of Northeast's 311 yards en route to a win over Dixie Hollins.

Jalin Hubbard returned the opening kickoff 89 yards for a Vikings touchdown.

And James Swain returned an interception 14 yards for a score in the second for Northeast.

Meanwhile, Davis repeatedly ducked, dipped and dodged his way out of collapsing pockets and scrambled for first downs. He finished with 85 yards on 14 rushes and 117 yards and a touchdown on 8-for-14 passing, spreading the ball to seven receivers.

Only running back Keith Harrington could outrun Davis, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries.

Injuries continued to plague the Rebels.

Starting running back Deondre Lambert, who scored late in the first half on a 4-yard run, went down with a knee injury on the first play from scrimmage in the second half while trying to break a tackle.

He was treated by paramedics on the field and taken off on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance. His status was unknown.
