by The Palm Beach Post
Clay Meister threw for 168 yards and three touchdown passes, two to Johnnie Dixon, leading second-ranked Dwyer to a 42-7 rout of West Boca Raton on Friday night.
After taking an early 2-0 lead on a West Boca (1-3) snap through the end zone, Meister connected with Dixon on a fade, going 61 yards down the field for the score.
In the second quarter, Meister and Dixon connected once again, this time from 11 yards out to extend the Dwyer (5-0) lead to 15-0. Dixon finished the night with three catches for 75 yards.
Despite being without their starting running back Cortney Lowery, who was rushed to the hospital for appendicitis, the Panthers still ran for 169 yards, thanks in large part to Anthony Williams, who gained 81 yards on just seven carries. He scored from 11 yards out to make it 22-0.
West Boca's lone score would come on a Zachary Miner 14-yard pass to Dylan Callahan.
Meister's final touchdown pass was 60 yars to Natrone Macon.
