Spring game-breakers: Tyler Kaminski, who replaces Billy Pavlock, led the Hurricanes to three scoring drives during his three-plus quarters. He also completed 6 of 10 passes for 53 yards. … Dimitri Royer may have solved PHU’s running back problem, carrying 17 times for 116 yards and two touchdowns. … The Hurricanes’ Logan Ruby kicked a 43-yard field goal for the first score. And Dominic Bonelli started the second half with a 79-yard kick return that set up Royer’s first touchdown. … The Hurricanes’ defense may have been the most impressive unit, holding the Pirates to 45 yards rushing and 146 yards overall. They did not have a shutout all of last season. … Receiver Jaylaan Winbush stood out for Boca Ciega. Winbush, who also plays defensive back, caught four passes from starter Derrick Cook for 49 yards. … Cook, Caleb McCullough and Jaire Balloon took turns at quarterback for the Pirates, with Cook getting most of the snaps. … Fortune Gamble was Boca Ciega’s leading rusher with 33 yards on nine carries.

Audible 1: “We got pushed around on both sides of the ball. I told them we’ve got to get stronger. We have to make a commitment to the weight room. We need to forget about Xs and Os for the next 10 weeks.” — Boca Ciega coach Antez Brinson

Audible 2: “I’ve got to give it up for that defense. They are really starting to play together as a group.” — PHU coach Matt LePain
