ST. PETERSBURG — Seniors Tyrie Adams and Davontae Harrington were the bright spots for the Rebels in a game that started two hours late because of traffic delays encountered by the visiting Sailors.

Drives of the game: Even though they were down two scores, there was still hope for Dixie with about eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. But the Rebels weren’t able to hold the Sailors offense, which made two first downs and controlled the ball for all but the final few seconds of the game.

Play of the game: After the Sailors had taken a 27-21 lead in the fourth quarter, the Rebels fumbled the ensuing kickoff. On the next play, Sarasota took the ball in for a 12-point lead.

Stars of the game: Harrington caught eight passes for 173 yards. Adams was 17 of 24 for 276 yards.

Stat of the game: Dixie Hollins turned the ball over four times. That won’t win many football games.
