Football: Tampa Catholic 28, Lake Highland Prep 14

ORLANDO — Tampa Catholic was led by solid rushing attack and a stout defense in a 28-14 victory over Lake Highland Prep. The Crusaders are 4-0 after starting last season 0-4.

TC's running back tandem of Jordan Rich-Rogers and Trevor Register gained 234 of the team's 280 total yards and all three offensive touchdowns. Rich-Rogers was first to get on the board with a 1-yard TD run after Chivarsky Corbett completed a pass to Justin Motlow for 32 yards.

Register took a handoff and cut upfield for a 75-yard TD run to give TC a 14-point lead going into halftime. Senior Taylor Timmons had three sacks.

The Highlanders received the opening kickoff of the second half and drove the length of the field, scoring on a quarterback sneak. LHP then forced a quick three-and-out, but before they could get started again, Tampa Catholic's Michael Sarifianos picked off a pass and returned it for a TD.
