Winter Haven | Dwight Drayton rushed for 245 yards and three touchdowns as All Saints ran away from Legacy Charter of Ocoee 40-13 at Jahna Field, raising their winning streak to three games.
Drayton was off to the races early. On his very first carry, he scampered 28 yards around right end for a touchdown.
Legacy's Deontry James immediately answered by returning the kickoff 95 yards tying the score at 6-6. With 3:56 remaining in the opening quarter, Saints defensive back Edric Bennett alertly picked up a fumbled lateral and raced down the left sideline untouched for a 50-yard score.
Drayton scored in the second quarter on a 34 yard run. Again it was Deontray James who countered, catching a 29-yard touchdown pass from Colton Liddell to bring the Eagles to make 18-13 at the half.
All Saints proved too tough in the second half, however, and the Eagles never threatened after the break. Troy Macneill ran for a 24-yard touchdown run. Patrick Fox then connected with Bennett for a 42-yard touchdown pass, putting the Saints ahead 32-13 after three quarters.
Drayton capped off his huge rushing night with a spectacular 56 yard run to conclude the scoring.
"What can I say? Dwight has a great set of wheels! Tonight, he could not be stopped", All Saints coach Gary Tufford said.
