ENGLEWOOD — After two weeks of offensive futility, Lemon Bay moved the ball plenty against Gulf Coast on Friday night at Veterans Stadium.
The Mantas, who hadn’t scored a touchdown in their last two games, scored five of them to win by 19. The win, along with Charlotte’s loss to Port Charlotte, put the three teams in a tie for the district championship.
“We needed some confidence,” Lemon Bay (6-3, 2-1) coach D.J. Ogilvie said. “That was huge for us. Very huge for our psyche on offense.”
Ogilvie used just three runners in the first half – Austin Hirschy, Dakota Reigle and quarterback Lucas Sparks – and the trio gained 151 yards before halftime. Sparks did most of the work, running for 102 yards on 13 carries with two rushing touchdowns.
“That’s the thing – getting our quarterback on track running the football,” Ogilvie said. “That’s huge for our offense.”
