Lightning halts FSDB game at Hawthorne

GAINESVILLE . So far, the weather is 1-0 against St. Johns County teams
for the 2014 high school football season.

Thunderstorms in central Florida Thursday night eventually forced
cancellation of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind.s Kickoff
Classic against Hawthorne.

The game was called after each team had one possession following a weather
delay of more than an hour.

Once the game started, the Dragons showed the effectiveness on both sides
of the ball that helped make them Deaf National Champions last season.

Marcus Maldonado capped a 10-play opening drive with a short rushing
touchdown for FSDB in its only offensive possession before the Dragons
recovered an errant snap the lone time their defense was on the field. The
game was then called due to lightning in the area.

Although the game was shortened due to weather, coach Eric LeFors enjoyed
what he saw from his offense, which marched down the field without
attempting a pass.

.I liked that we were able to move the ball very well,. LeFors said. .We
held our own in the trenches and moved the ball. Defensively, there.s not
much we can say. We didn.t have much of a chance to be on the field..

LeFors and his team will now turn their attention to their season-opener
Thursday at home against Gainesville Oak Hall. Given what he has seen from
his players so far, LeFors is confident they will be prepared.

.I like our progress,. he said. .In terms of learning the playbook, we.re
ahead of where we were last year..

Florida football

comments from coach Eric Lefors:

The Dragons opened their season with a Pre-Season Kickoff Classic
against the Hawthorne Hornets.  Unfortunately, the weather would not
allow us to play a complete game.  The start of the game was delayed
for close to an hour due to lightning.  Once we started play, it was
with 8-minute quarters.  And after 7 minutes of game time, we had to
call the game off due to a storm system that was moving in on us.

Nevertheless, we did play for 7 minutes and there was a lot to like
from the Dragons in those 7 minutes of action.  We received the
opening kickoff and marched down the field in 10 plays covering 53
yards capped off with a 1-yard touchdown run by Senior Marcus
Maldonado.

On our lone defensive possession, we forced a fumble and managed to
recover it.  We had the ball 35 yards from paydirt before the game
was called off.

Since this is a Pre-Season game that will not count for anything in
the standings, we will not be finishing this game.  While it was a
very short game, we had many moments to be proud of.  But also there
were some areas of improvement that we will be working on to prepare
for our season opener against Oak Hall next week on our home turf.

SCORING SUMMARY
1q FSDB- Maldonado 1 run (kick fail), 6-0

STATS
RUSHING: Stanfield 3-24, Homewood 3-15, Maldonado 3-11, 1td, Scott
1-3

DEFENSE: Ames 2 tackles, Williams & Homewood 1 tackle for loss,
