13-9 Win Over St. Edwards on Homecoming/Senior Night!
10/20/17 – After a week full of Homecoming celebrations, our Griffins finished off the week with a 13-9 victory and sent our Seniors out with a final home win! Quarterback Walker Dycus ran for one score and threw for another as host Lake Mary Prep improved to 5-2 on the season.
Dycus ran for a touchdown in the first quarter, but a 2-point conversion attempt failed and the guests answered with a touchdown in the second period, but the PAT was missed, and the teams went to intermission tied at 6-6.
The Pirates (5-3) kicked a field goal early in the third period, but the Griffins answered with a highlight-reel play as Dycus hit LJ Matos with a short pass over the middle and weaved his way through the St. Edward’s defense, making at least nine Pirates miss, for a 75-yard game-winning touchdown late in the third quarter.
The defense, led by Zac Epperson with 22 tackles, 12 solo, and a huge interception late in the game, did the rest.
Dycus was 17-for-31 passing for 262-yards with a touchdown and an interception, while Matos caught seven passes for 136-yards and the touchdown, Judah Winfrey caught two passes for 63-yards, including a 50-yard reception, and Andy Allison caught four passes for 52-yards
