Mourning can’t keep up as Mater answers in shortened game

Mater Academy (3-0, 3-0) answered two big Dontae Charles runs with ensuing home run kickoff returns as the Lions beat host Mourning (0-3, 0-2) in a weather-delayed game, 45-15.

Darius Brown returned a kick 87 yards, and Darius Nixon ran another back 75 yards after Charles, the Sharks’ quarterback, busted loose for touchdown runs of 46 and 80 yards at North Miami Stadium.

TOP TWO

Daniel Doriscar: Ran for 143 yards and a 70-yard TD run.

Dontae Charles: Rushed for 185 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.

THEY SAID IT

“He’s Cam Newton and Michael Vick. I hope he gets a chance to play in college.”
