The Packers jump out to an early 24-point lead en route to a 31-0 win over Dunedin.

DUNEDIN - Largo has been controlled on occasion - for a few minutes, a quarter, maybe. Then things seem to explode.
Running backs start gobbling up yardage in huge chunks. The ball comes off quarterback Leonard Johnson's hand like a rocket. The defense becomes unhinged - zone, blitz, it doesn't matter.
Suddenly, the frenzy is on and every drive produces a score. It's like an adding machine gone wild, and a tight game becomes a blowout.
It happened again Thursday night, as the Packers got off to a quick start and never looked back in a 31-0 victory over previously unbeaten Dunedin.
"I always tell the players that we have to set the tone and get after people," Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said.
On its opening possession, Largo (4-0) ran the ball effectively and drove 54 yards before being stalled. Talmadge Yundt came in to kick a 28-yard field goal to make it 3-0.
That's when special teams came into play.
Instead of sending the ball deep to the Falcons' speedy returners, Largo opted for a squib kickoff. This created some confusion with no one touching the ball for Dunedin (3-1).
The Packers recovered the ball and took advantage as Brynn Harvey ran 28 yards for a touchdown.
The next kickoff was a facsimile of the first. Again, the Falcons had trouble handling it. Again, Largo recovered.
This time, Johnson hit Reginald McCray on an 8-yard scoring pass. The Packers were ahead 17-0 before Dunedin had the ball. Johnson also threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Kim Howard to make it 24-0 at the half.
"Coach says we have to come out and throw the first punch," said Johnson, whose team has outscored opponents 87-6 in the first half of games this season.
In the second half, Johnson added a 9-yard touchdown run to round out the scoring.
