Roger LaLonde/Staff Lely's Marvin Libersiote has no Cypress Lake defender in front of him for a 36-yard punt return that set up Lely's second field goal in the Trojans win on Friday night.

The Lely Trojans never let Cypress Lake cross the 50-yard line on Friday night, pulling away for a 33-0 home victory.

The win gave new coach Stacey Stewart his first victory.

The Trojans (1-1) had outstanding field position all night, thanks to a very stingy defense.

Interceptions by Termain McClendon and Chrisnell Germain helped give Lely good field position. The defense held Cypress Lake to 48 yards rushing and 38 yards through the air.

"That was our Black Shirt defense," first-year Lely coach Stacey Stewart said. "They are still raw but getting better every game. Our priority is protecting the ball on offense and closing down on defense."

Karbiel Dirogene did both. He accounted for 3 1/2 sacks as a defensive back and scored a touchdown while playing quarterback. His score came after he returned a punt 40 yards, then ran the remaining 20 yards for the score.

"Dirogene is a good athlete and is getting into shape to play offense and defense," Stewart said.

Dirogene gave credit to teammates for his sacks and his touchdown.

"The defensive tackle made it possible for me to get the sacks and the offensive tackle gave me the chance for the touchdown with a key block," he said. "I am part of a team, we do it together."

While his Trojans scored just two field goals in the fist half, Stewart was pleased.

"We started out fast, we didn't complete the drives," he said. "We also had a dropped pass in the end zone. We should have had at least 21 points in the first half."

Lely kicker Sergio Alfaro staked the Trojans to a first-half lead with field goals from 26 and 22 yards out.

DeWarren Mobley, led the Trojans in rushing with 87 yards on 12 carries, scoring a 7-yard touchdown. Isme Tupac crossed the goal line on a 2-yard blast up the middle.

Because Lely had the ball on Cypress Lake's side of the field, the statistics weren't as high as would be expected in a one-sided game.

For the night Lely had 192 total yards, with 159 on the ground and 33 passing. Receiver Lech Pierre had three catches for all 33 yards.
