Lakewood 37, Boca Ciega 0

SEMINOLE — Lakewood brought the entire package to Osceola for its game against Boca Ciega and for the first time in six years defeated its crosstown rival in an impressive 37-0 win.

"We wanted to come out here and make a statement," said Lakewood quarterback Jacquez Jenkins, who went 6-for-19 in passing for 161 yards and three touchdowns. "We knew they had a good defense so we worked all week in preparation for it. We were able to take advantage of their man defense both on the run and the pass."

Boca Ciega held Dunedin to 14 points last week but could not do much on either side of the ball as the Spartans outgained the Pirates 387-110.

On the third play of the game, Jenkins hit Bernard Reedy on a go route down the left sideline for an 86-yard score. Then, after holding Boca Ciega to a three and out, Jenkins broke up the middle on a delayed run for a 25-yard score to give the Spartans a 14-0 lead.

On their third possession, Lakewood made the score 21-0 as Jenkins found Victor Perkins in the corner of the end zone.

And Lakewood's defense sacked Boca Ciega quarterback Shaquille Bradford nine times.

"We had a great week of preparation," Lakewood coach Cory Moore said. "We tested well on the mental aspect of the game in preparing for Boca Ciega and we did a good job in executing everything on both sides of the ball."

Reedy, who rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, scored on a 63-yard run in the third quarter to give the Spartans a 34-0 lead.

Boca Ciega's Latavien Washington rushed for 156 yards on 13 carries.

The game was played at Osceola's field because of an infestation of mole crickets at the fields of both competing teams.
