A rivalry game between East Ridge and South Lake turned into a lopsided affair early when East Ridge quarterback BeSean McCray connected with David Shannon on the first play of the game for a 65 yard touchdown strike.

McCray was just getting started. After throwing two touchdowns and running for two more last week, he connected on 17 of 20 passes on the night, threw three touchdowns and ran for another.

"He's the real deal," East Ridge coach Ashour Peera said.

East Ridge enjoyed big plays all night long, including a 65-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown by CJ Lake and a kickoff return of 86 yards. On the defensiveside of the ball, BeSean McCray's brother, Benny McCray, stopped a South Lake drive with an interception in the red zone.

"I think it was considered a rivalry game for us," Peera said. "The tea remembered what happened a few years ago when we lost to South Lake, and they came out to prove something."

East Ridge (2-1) hosts Ocoee next week.

South Sumter 41, Umatilla 0

South Sumter stayed perfect on the young season with a 41-0 drubbing of Umatilla in a game that Raider head coach Ty Lawrence described as the team's best effort of the season.

"The defense played outstanding," Lawrence said. "By far their best game of the season. It kind of looked like Raider football, something we haven't seen this year yet."

South Sumter led 35-0 at the half and played the entire second half with a running clock.

The Raiders (3-0) go to Ocala next week to face Trinity Catholic.

Christ's Church Academy 30, Mount Dora Christian 24

Mount Dora Christian had some big plays on offense to keep the game close, but Mount Dora Christian coach Jim Nichols said Christ's Church wore his team down with long drives to preserve the win.

In the first half, Chris Conway tossed a pass to Mike Curtis that Curtis took 60 yards for a score. Just before the half, with Christ's Church up 13-7, Mount Dora Christian boomed a 47-yard field goal to close the gap.

Mount Dora Christian opened the scoring in the second half, taking the lead on a 10-yard run by Jasper Pierre. Christ's Church answered with two touchdowns before Pierrea took a pass 60 yards for another score.

On the final drive, Mount Dora Christian was driving, but the rally was snuffed out by an interception.

"We had more chances than that," Nichols said. "It wasn't just the interception. The defense didn't play as well as it did the past four games.

"We're going to be OK," Nichols added. "Their confidence is good. They'll come back from this just fine."

First Academy of Leesburg 48, Ocala Christian 24

Junior quarterback Caleb Lynum threw for 307 yards and five touchdowns while Desmond Harris Jr. scored four touchdowns to lead First Academy of Leesburg (3-1) to the win over Ocala Christian (1-3).

Harris had touchdown catches of 56, 56 and 10 yards and added 69 yards rushing and a touchdown on the ground.

Senior lineman Roderick Bedford recovered an onside kick for the Eagles and returned it 46 yards for a score while adding nine tackles and a sack. Senior Anthony Dario led the defense with 16 tackles.

“Ocala Christian is better than their record indicates and our guys came out a little flat,” First Academy coach Sheldon Walker said. “But the kids really stepped up and played great. I’m very pleased with the game.”
