Lakewood 45, Northeast 7

ST. PETERSBURG — Senior Jermiel Douse ran for two first-half touchdowns as Lakewood improved to 8-2 with a victory over Northeast (3-7) on senior night.

The Spartans outgained Northeast 312-70 and had 14 first downs to the Vikings' two. Lakewood also recovered two fumbles.

Northeast recovered a fumble at the Spartans' 21-yard line early in the third quarter to set up a 10-yard TD run by Jovonte Brinson. That cut Lakewood's lead to 17-7, but the Spartans responded with a 37-yard TD pass from Alphonso Evans to Andre Taylor that started a string of 28 unanswered points.

Lakewood's Byronton Jackson had 118 rushing yards on 18 carries.

"It was a good game for us, we wanted to have momentum heading into the playoffs" said coach Cory Moore, whose Lakewood squad will visit Pasco in the opening round of the playoffs.
