The Citrus football team picked up its first victory of the season Friday night and they don’t get much bigger, as the Hurricanes knocked off defending district champion Hernando in Brooksville, 18-6.

Brendan Rooks scored a short touchdown run in the second quarter to give Citrus a 7-0 halftime lead. Leading 10-6 late in the game, the Hurricane defense came up huge.

After a Leopard reception, Citrus forced a fumble and Jacob Freier picked it up and sprinted 67 yards for the clinching score.
