HAINES CITY | Nydarius Roberts ran for two touchdowns and undefeated Landmark Christian pulled away in the second half Friday night for a 46-26 homecoming victory over International Community School of Winter Park.
The Patriots (9-0) had to come from behind twice in the second half to win their 20th consecutive game over two seasons. The 20-point margin was their closest of the season.
Roberts finished with 91 yards on eight carries. He scored on runs of 15 and 9 yards.
ICS, in its first year of football, got a huge game from junior receiver Joseph McGee, who scored the first and last touchdowns of the game on long passes from Austin Brady. McGee ended up with six catches for 191 yards.
McGee caught a 51-yard touchdown to give the Comets an early 6-0 lead. He later caught a 55-yard touchdown pass to end the scoring.
The Comets (3-4) were down by only one point at halftime, but Landmark broke it open in the third quarter with touchdowns by Roberts, Jawuan Mathis and Kenson Joseph.
Six different Patriots players found the end zone.
ICS lineman Michael Lawson suffered a spinal injury in the third quarter and was taken to Heart of Florida Hospital in an ambulance. There was no update on his condition.
