Victory Christian 48, Admiral Farragut 30

LAKELAND — Steve Stanley threw three touchdown passes, ran for three touchdowns and intercepted a pass, leading Victory Christian to a 48-30 win over Admiral Farragut that clinched the Class 1B-5 district championship.

The Storm (8-1, 5-0) built a 41-24 lead in a first half that had a combined 656 yards of offense. In its last six plays of the half, Victory scored four touchdowns, including on passes of 70 yards to Tanner Bowling and 57 yards to Mitch Choquette.

"That's been our moniker all year long," coach Jeff Schaum said. "But they got us on some big plays, too. We didn't expect that."

Admiral Farragut (5-2, 5-1) got a touchdown pass, an 80-yard punt return and an interception return for a touchdown from Josh Burch.
