Football: Sunlake 49, Springstead 16

LAND O'LAKES — Jerome Samuels ran for 115 yards and three touchdowns as Sunlake celebrated homecoming with a 49-16 win against Springstead on Friday night.

The Seahawks (3-0) scored on four of their five first-half possessions on the way to a 28-10 halftime lead. Samuels had two scores and senior quarterback Cameron Stoltz threw two touchdown passes.

The defense held the Eagles to a touchdown and a last-play field goal.

Stoltz, who was taken out late in the fourth quarter, finished 7-of-12 with 173 yards passing. He also rushed three times for 32 yards.

Rashaud Daniels rushed for a touchdown and Jamal Jones ran once for a 38-yard touchdown. Eddie Burgos and Ricardo Williams each had a touchdown reception.

Springstead (1-2) had a rough night defensively but totaled 262 yards of offense. Joe Predoehl recovered a fumble and returned it 81 yards for a touchdown.

Jesse Cowen started the play by recovering Daniels' fumble and running about 60 yards before fumbling it himself, with Predoehl there to finish the job.

Springstead quarterback Tyler Mahla completed 2 of 7 passes and rushed for 61 yards.

Austin Stock gained 68 yards on 14 carries and Kevin Bedford rushed for 102 yards and the Eagles' only offensive touchdown, a 56-yard run.
