Venice spring game is first since 2017 state title


VENICE – The Venice Indians sort of began defense of their state championship Wednesday night against Lakeland in the spring game and they did it with their old coaching staff minus their former head coach, John Peacock.

It was an offensive first half, but defense ruled the roost in the 2nd as Luke Apostlu stuffs the run on a Dreadnaught drive that went nowhere.

Then, new QB Hayden Wolff was trying to get things going, but the early 2nd half drives would stall.

The defense won the 2nd half as they shutout the Dreadnaughts who led 26–20 at the half, and Noah Carr had an interception and a pass break–up as the Indians scored the only points of the 2nd half and won 27–26
