CLEARWATER — Clearwater Central Catholic’s offense started fast in the first quarter en route to a 47-23 victory over Calvary Christian on Friday.

Eric Davis opened  the scoring  with a 39-yard  run then quarterback Jeff Smith scored on a 16-yard run to give the Marauders a 14-0 lead.

Calvary got on the board near the end of the quarter on a 55-yard interception return by Macs Thomas to cut the lead to 14-6. CCC immediately responded when JT Steele returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown.  He also rushed for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the second half.

CCC (6-1, 3-0) rushed for 280 yards and five  touchdowns  and had 371 yards  total offense.  Diquan Walker and  CJ Cotman  had touchdown runs for the Marauders.

Defensively the Marauders  held Calvary (4-3, 0-2) to 218 yards of offense and just 65 on the ground, partly due to the absence of Warriors star running back Danny Giordano.

Two CCC fumbles gave the Warriors great field position. They capitalized each time, first on a 40-yard field goal by Cody Streger.

Then at the end of the game Jeremy Wood found Zachary McGuire in the end zone on a 25-yard touchdown pass.

“We did some things wrong, put the ball on the ground a couple of times,” said CCC coach John Davis. “We have to clean up and correct a few things but a wins a win.”
