TAMPA - The only question was whether Armwood would hit triple-digits - even with a running clock in the second half.

The defending state champ and owner of the state's longest win streak at 20 games, Armwood simply decimated King 84-0. The Hawks (5-0) had 56 points by the half and rolled up 28 more in the second half.

Perhaps as noteworthy as the final score is that the Hawks, who scored 14 touchdowns, did so running a total of 31 plays and scored on the first play of their drive four times.

The game's longest play came with 7:44 left in the first quarter. Armwood running back Demetrius McCray scampered untouched 51 yards for a score that put the Hawks up 14-0.

McCray, a senior, had seven carries for 173 yards. He also scored four touchdowns with runs of 25, 51, 38 and 47 yards. McCray caught one pass for 25 yards.

The Armwood defense did its share. It held the Lions (1-4) to minus 8 yards of total offense. The Hawks did not allow a completed pass, picked off two throws and recovered a fumble.

"We did a great job of coming out hyped and we got a great win," McCray said. "It just feels great to come here and win like this."
