Mitchell 29, Lecanto 25

TRINITY — Lecanto faced off in a close game against Mitchell, but the Mustangs made a huge fourth-quarter comeback to edge the Panthers.

The Panthers (2-4) struck first when Ardante Anderson (13 carries, 56 yards) scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter. The last score before halftime was a Dmitry Growdon’s 4-yard run, putting the Panthers ahead 13-0.

The second half was a comeback story for the Mustangs (4-3) when Taylor Schneider (five-of-16, 88 yards) ran for an 8-yard touchdown to start out the third quarter.

Mitchell’s Ryan Marsh (12 carries, 117 yards) scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to give the Panthers a two-point lead late in the game.

Mitchell’s final score was a 55-yard pass from Schneider to Zack Rapaport to seal the victory.

Anderson added two 4-yard touchdown runs in the fourth quarter for Lecanto, but the Panthers failed on both 2-point conversion runs.

Next week, Mitchell plays host to Fivay.
