Lakewood 45, Clearwater 6

CLEARWATER — Lakewood needed only one kickoff return and seven offensive plays to jump out to a 21-0 lead over Clearwater and breezed to a 45-6 victory.

On the opening kickoff, Bernard Reedy raced 85 yards into the end zone for the first score. Before the quarter was over quarterback Jacquez Jenkins hit Sermetrius Dennis on a 44-yard touchdown pass and a 39-yard touchdown pass.

Before the half ended Dennis caught his third touchdown of the game, this time for 21 yards. The 5-6, 136-pound sophomore has five scoring catches for the season and at least one in each game for the Spartans (2-1). His five scores have covered 177 yards, or 35 yards per touchdown catch.

"I'm going to try to score one in every game," Dennis said. "It's easy to me. (Jenkins) is a senior quarterback and I look up to him."

The game featured a kickoff return for a touchdown to start the game and one to start the second half. The third quarter began when Clearwater's Tarrence Jackson dodged defenders for a 100-yard return — his second of the season.

Reedy finished the game with 96 rushing yards, including a 55-yard touchdown run, and Jenkins finished with 78 yards rushing and 221 yards passing.

Jenkins was 5-for-6 to start the game, but a credit to the Clearwater defense, he was 5-for-16 the rest of the way.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
