At Steinbrenner
Scores: Steinbrenner 22, Alonso 21
Sickles 22, Gaither 14

Spring game-breakers: Kezio Snelling was the star for Steinbrenner, scoring all three touchdowns on a pair of kickoff returns (75 and 80 yards) and a 13-yard run. His 80-yarder came with 33.7 seconds left and Shyheem Barthel’s two-point conversion run was the difference. … Alonso quarterback Chris Oladokun (6-for-10, 97 yards) threw for two scores, including a 20-yarder to Marcus Mosely with 48.7 seconds remaining to snap a 14-all tie. … Sickles running back Ray Ray McCloud rushed for 88 yards on 11 carries, and ran for two TDs (2 and 1 yards) and a pair of two-point conversions. … His teammate, quarterback Issac Holder, passed for a score and completed 4 of 5 passes (one interception) for 106 yards, including three tosses longer than 22 yards. … Gaither quarterback Alex McGough (8-for-10, 168 yards) had a pair of TD passes and ran for a two-point conversion.

Did you know? Steinbrenner principal Kelly King, who was appointed to the position Tuesday night, was presented the game ball by coach Andres Perez-Reinaldo in front of a cheering team. “I’m undefeated as a principal,” King said. “This was great.”

Audible 1: “I saw some gutsy performances, and I saw some kids that grew up (and) became Warriors.” — Perez-Reinaldo

Audible 2: “Our offensive line protected well and our run game sets up our pass. No. 1 (Holder) hit the guys that were open.” — Sickles coach Brian Turner
