ST. PETERSBURG — Shorecrest showed former Northside Christian coach Bob Dare how far he has to go with his new team as the Chargers handled Cambridge on Friday.
Harrison Settle gave the Chargers a 7-0 lead on a 10-yard run early in the second quarter.
Then when the Lancers started driving, defensive back Alex Drexler intercepted a pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown and Shorecrest took a 14-0 lead at halftime.
When starting quarterback Hunter Tremaine left the game in the third quarter with cramps, backup Dakota Hirsch came on and threw a 35-yard touchdown to Phil Tylman.
Late in the fourth quarter the Lancers started to find a little bit of offense.
Sophomores Hayden Kelly and Damarcus Faison hooked up for a 76-yard touchdown. Faison, who is 6-foot-5 and 180 pounds, is playing his first year of organized football.
The Lancers converted the two point conversion to make the final score 20-8.
