Homecoming is generally one of the most exciting games on the schedule for players and coaches. For most of the county’s teams this year, it was. For others, not so much.
The Lecanto Panthers were mauled defensively by Central’s running back De’Vonta Smith, who rushed for 358 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Panthers (1-3) lost 35-21 to the Bears (3-2) and fell to 0-2 in the district.
Smith has scored 18 touchdowns this year and has rushed for almost 1,500 yards through five games.
