Calvert, Carol City air out Lakeland 44-34

Miami Carol City quarterback Steven Calvert let loose for four touchdown passes and a total of 257 passing yards in the first half as the visiting Chiefs took a double-digit lead and rolled to a 44-34 victory over traditional state power Lakeland on Friday night.

“They spread us out and got on us so fast,’’ Lakeland coach Bill Castle said, “before you knew it, it was 21-0.’’

Indeed, the Chiefs (2-1) scored four touchdowns before Lakeland, ranked second in Class 7A, scored its only points of the first half on a 12-yard blocked punt and return by Danquarus Longs.

Calvert, a 6-foot-2 senior who is already committed to Liberty, said this wasn’t his best career half.

“Twice in the first half last year I threw six touchdowns,’’ said Calvert.

He passed for another touchdown in the second half, and finished 20-for-26 for 292 yards before retiring with two minutes left in the third quarter with a 38-14 lead.

▪ Columbus 17, Southridge 13: Freshman running back Darren Davis Jr., going against the team his father and uncle once played for, had six of his 92 yards go for a touchdown with 2:15 remaining to give Columbus (3-0) the decisive lead.

“It’s strange because I’m playing where [my family’s] legacy was made as a freshman,” Davis Jr. said. “I had to make something happen.”

The go-ahead touchdown run was set up by a 42-yard deep ball over the middle from Alejandro Ros to Jerron Rollins.

Southridge (2-1) had its final drive extended by a roughing-the-passer penalty after a fourth-down stop, but quarterback Drakar Jerry’s final heave to the end zone was intercepted as time expired by Trajan Bandy.

Down 13-3 late in the third quarter, junior running back CJ Henderson, who added 51 rushing yards Friday, scored from 4 yards out to cut into the deficit.

Southridge took a 7-3 lead right before halftime when Jerry hit Malik Spatcher at the pylon for a 7-yard touchdown. Cliff Smith Jr. added to the Spartans’ lead with a score from 9 yards out in the third.
