Preseason football: Mosley 20, Lakewood 14 OT

ST. PETERSBURG — Depending the viewpoint, Mosley's 20-14 win was either a "bend-but-don't break" thriller or a "learning opportunity" to build on going forward. Luckily for the Spartans, the loss came in a preseason game. Even so, they had plenty of chances, including two possessions in the closing minutes that both resulted in Lakewood failing to find the end zone.

Drive of the game: In the fourth quarter, down by eight, Mosley drove the ball 63 yards on the strength of 11 rushes and one pass, culminating in a 2-yard scramble by quarterback Dillon Brown for a touchdown. A two-point conversion from Jimmy Daniel tied the score at 14.

Play of the game: The final play saw Mosley's Jimmy Daniel run 10 yards for a score in overtime for the winner. The running back racked up 124 yards on 16 carries.

Star of the game: Ryan Davis showed why he's being heavily recruited because of his arm and legs. He rushed for 66 yards on seven tries. He was 16-for-28 passing for 215 yards and two scores.

Final word: "The thing we talk about is to look at the process. We now have a chance to work on some fundamentals after playing a good team like that. It was a measuring stick to see where we are and what we need to work on." — Lakewood coach Cory Moore
