JEFFERSON 45, BLAKE 14
TAMPA - When Stephen Garcia wasn't clicking as well as he normally does with his receivers, he decided to use his legs instead.
Garcia broke a scoreless tie in the second quarter with a 44-yard touchdown run where he eluded seven defenders.
Jefferson (7-1) then started to pour it on against the pesky Yellow Jackets.
Garcia threw two touchdowns right before the half as the Dragons took a commanding 21-0 lead.
Blake (2-5) fought back in the third quarter thanks to some big runs by quarterback Mark Mosquera.
But after the Yellow Jackets cut the lead to 21-7, Jefferson's Ernest Marshall ran back a kickoff 70 yards for a score.
Mosquera added a 1-yard score to make it 28-14, but the Yellow Jackets couldn't get any closer.
Garcia finished with 179 passing and 102 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Anthony Mackinnon caught four passes for 79 yards.

FREEDOM 44, MIDDLETON 33
TAMPA - Fans of offense left Freedom's clash at Middleton all smiles. Middleton outgained Freedom 460 yards to 381 yards, but a special teams play sealed the win for Freedom (3-4).
After a Freedom fumble on the Tigers' 30-yard line, Middleton (3-5), behind for most of the night, started to pick up momentum midway through the third quarter when quarterback DeAndra Presley found Javarous Martin down the right sideline for a 70-yard touchdown to cut Freedom's lead to 30-21.
But on the ensuing kickoff, Freedom's Josh Lee ran through a few Middleton arm tackles and juked the kicker for an 85-yard touchdown return that gave the Patriots a 16-point lead and momentum.
Patriots quarterback Andrew Carr finished 25-for-32 for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Larry Thompson caught two touchdown passes, and Alex Carr caught 10 passes for 157 yards to lead Freedom.

PLANT 56, LETO 8
TAMPA - Behind quarterback Robert Marve's pinpoint passing, Plant thumped Leto in a Class 4A, District 10 matchup to stay unbeaten and inch closer towards a winner-take-all district showdown in two weeks at Jefferson.
