Preseason football: Cambridge 50, Shorecrest 28

ST. PETERSBURG — Shorecrest put together a great first half against Cambridge. But the Lancers' ground game came to life in the second half Friday as they put away the Chargers 50-28.

Cambridge led 7-6 heading into the second quarter.

Sam Grant scored on a 10-yard sneak to put Shorecrest up 12-7. Alex Drexler bolted for a 40-yard touchdown to put the Chargers up 20-14. He finished with 155 on 12 carries and two scores.

Later in the second quarter Daniel Hamilton scored on a 5-yard run to give the Lancers a 21-20 lead. Shorecrest led 28-21 at halftime.

In the second half Damarcus Faison entered the game for the Lancers after being held out for disciplinary reasons. He had a 32-yard catch-and-run from Garrett Young. Also, Cambridge's Brandon Park made a spectacular play as he intercepted a pitchout and took it in for a 28-yard return. Hamilton added two more scores.

"We started a freshman quarterback who handled the pressure very well," Cambridge coach Bob Dare said. "We made plays on defense and we had a high level of confidence."
