FOOTBALL: Lemon Bay vs. DeSoto County capsule

By Bryan Levine, SunCoast Sports

Lemon Bay (1-2, 0-1) at DeSoto County (0-2, 0-1)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.
Last week: Hardee 47, Lemon Bay 23; Southeast 35, DeSoto County 0.
Last season: DeSoto 16, Lemon Bay 10.
Players to watch: Lemon Bay: Hayden Wolff (Jr., QB), Logan Lydic (Sr., LB/SB), Joe Eubanks (Sr., DE); DeSoto County: Arnold Mele (Jr., WR/DB), Malcom Smith (Sr., QB/DB), Neo Hilliard (Jr., RB/DB).
What to expect: Both teams are coming off rough district-opening losses just a few days ago. Although both are working on short weeks, the Manta Rays had one less day to prepare for this pivotal district contest. In this matchup last season, the Bulldogs answered each time Lemon Bay put points on the board. Brayden Curry rushed for 115 yards in this game last season, but it’ll likely be a few different Manta Rays to make up that slack this time around.
