Lakeland wins 19th straight over Kathleen
HS Sports

Lakeland, Fla. -- Kathleen had no playoffs to look forward to so their crosstown trip to face rival Lakeland acted as the Red Devils' postseason. It was more disappointment for Kathleen as Lakeland won 31-21.

Lakeland stretched their win streak over Kathleen to 19 games.

With the game tied at 21, Lakeland got a go-ahead 29-yard field goal from Caleb Hough. The Dreadnaughts sealed it with a Braxton Huggins 4-yard touchdown run for the final score.

Kathleen tied it at 21 just before halftime on a 46-yard touchdown run from James McClinton.

Lakeland built a 14-0 lead in the first quarter behind quarterback Raheeme Dumas.  Dumas scored the first touchdown with an 11-yard run.  Then he connected with Miami commit Ricquan Southward for a 60-yard score.

Lakeland heads into the playoffs as the top ranked team in class 7A and the Dreadnaughts will host St. Cloud in the first round.
