At Largo

Largo 42, Clearwater 39

Spring game-breakers: The Packers were led by two rising sophomores in running back Derek Doss and quarterback Juwan Brown. Doss proved a capable replacement for D.J. Key with eight rushes for 150 yards and three touchdowns, including the winner. Brown continued proving his worth as a dual-threat quarterback by rushing 15 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns. He was also 3-for-4 passing for 51 yards. …The Packers defense struggled early but was able to get a stop when Largo needed it most. The defense was led by rising senior Chris Johnson and rising junior Lakeif Daniels. Johnson had a big stop to stall a Tornadoes drive late, and Daniels' came up with two interceptions. …The Tornadoes were led by quarterback Ryan Hagen, running back Bennie Niles and wide receiver Jon Hogan. Hagen was 15-of-25 passing for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Hogan had four receptions for 86 yards and three touchdowns of 15, 40 and 30 yards. Niles rushed 15 times for 72 yards and one touchdown.

Did you know? The Packers rebounded from a 17-point first-quarter deficit.
