The Lemon Bay offense was clicking on all cylinders as the Manta Rays celebrated Senior Night with a 55-7 shellacking of North Fort Myers in a District 5A-14 matchup Friday night.
The Mantas got off to a hot start by scoring with ease on their first four possessions.
“We knew Lemon Bay was good,” said North coach Brian Makar. “Definitely better than their record. We knew it would be a battle for us, but they whipped our butts, plain and simple.”
A 33-yard pass from Brandon Makar to Brian Byrd on the first play of the second quarter set up Makar’s 1- yard sneak that cut the deficit to 14-7, but it took the Mantas only 23 seconds to respond, as Austin Hirschy returned the kickoff 57 yards and Bob Caspolich swept 43 yards on the first play from scrimmage to make it 21-7.
“That’s the story of our season pretty much,” said Brian Makar.
