Lakewood 45, Osceola 14

ST. PETERSBURG — Lakewood (6-1, 3-0 Class 4A, District 9) delivered an impressive performance in dismantling Osceola (0-8, 0-3) in front of a homecoming crowd.

The Spartans' Jacquez Jenkins completed 6-of-13 for 112 passing yards and a touchdown in the first half. He also carried five times for 38 yards and a TD, as Lakewood built a 17-7 lead at the half.

The Warriors countered with a steady dose of Edwin McKinney, who finished with 203 total yards from scrimmage. However, Osceola quarterback Dylan Lantz struggled, completing just 6-of-23 with two interceptions.

Osceola trailed 24-14 with 7:55 to play, but Jenkins threw two late touchdown passes — one each to Marcus Jackson and Victor Perkins. Jenkins finished the game with 182 yards passing, 108 yards rushing and four total touchdowns.
