Football: Northeast 30, Osceola 6

RECOMMENDED READING


ST. PETERSBURG — Northeast's offense and QB Ryan Davis continued to impress with a 30-6 win Friday night over Osceola.

"I feel like great things could happen this year," Davis said.

Davis, who completed 18 of 21 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown, got the Vikings off to a fast start. On the game's first play, he found Jalin Hubbard off play-action for a 65-yard score.

The Warriors (0-2) totaled more than 250 yards rushing. Osceola closed the gap on Austin Lawrence's 34-yard touchdown run. The Vikings (2-0) responded with Hubbard's 69-yard kickoff return to go up by 10.

Turnovers on the Warriors' next two drives hurt their chances. A Warriors fumble on the kickoff return to open the second half led to Donterio Fowler's 10-yard TD run and a 23-6 Vikings lead.
