Spring game-breakers: A two-hour weather delay kept Calvary and Naples from completing a full game, opting instead to play two quarters. … Led by rising senior Derek Barnes, Calvary’s secondary is something to keep a close eye on. He finished with two passes defensed and an interception. Rising junior Zack Walters also had an interception, adding to the Warriors’ three total picks. … Derek’s brother, Allen, also a rising senior, had six rushes for 47 yards, including a 21-yard gain on his first carry. He received the majority of his touches as a wing back in coach Dave Bonchi’s new offensive scheme. … Quarterback Jeremy Wood displayed excellent accuracy, going 3-for-4 for 35 yards. The rising junior found Cuneyt Ozkardes for a 13-yard gain to the 2-yard line then plunged it in on a keeper two plays later. … Calvary struggled to hang onto the ball in wet conditions, fumbling three times in the first quarter.

Did you know? Calvary didn’t throw a pass until midway through the second quarter.

Audible 1: “They had come three hours, and it would have been frustrating for both of our teams if we weren’t able to play at all tonight.” — Bonchi, on the out-of-area opponent

Audible 2: “It was wet, but I’m not going to make any excuses. I just fumbled the ball.” — Derek Barnes after breaking a big run then fumbling in the first quarter
