Lancers whip Wilcox in CCS opener

St. Francis High’s Darrell Page, trying to break a tackle against Wilcox, scored five touchdowns Friday.

Only Darrell Page’s name will appear in the St. Francis High football record book for rushing for five touchdowns Friday in the Lancers’ 51-27 playoff rout of Wilcox, but it really was a team effort.

St. Francis’ offensive line, tight ends and fullbacks cleared the way for Page – often opening humongous holes for him to run through – while receivers held their blocks downfield to help the speedy junior get past the last line of defense.

Pinewood claims league title in football

The Pinewood School football team captured its first league title since 2011 – and second overall – with a 68-66 overtime win at rival Woodside Priory Friday.

The Panthers rallied from a 12-point halftime deficit to take the lead, only to see Priory tie the contest in the final minute of regulation. Quarterback Jaedan Bailey’s 10-yard pass to Marcus Fox put Pinewood ahead in overtime, and the two-point conversion proved to be the difference, as Priory’s attempt failed after its touchdown in OT.
