Admiral Farragut 34, Keswick Christian 12

ST. PETERSBURG — Sometimes it takes a punch in the mouth to get a team started. After host Admiral Farragut gave up the first score, it rattled off 34 straight points.

"We didn't really make any adjustments schemewise," Blue Jackets coach Chris Miller said. "It was a matter of becoming more physical."

The Crusaders, who got 200 yards rushing from DeJuan Wright, capped a 12-play drive with Jaylin Coleman hitting Armani Lonardo with a 2-yard scoring pass.

Josh Burch started the AFA rally, scoring on a 30-yard run. After an interception, AFA's Reyshawn Jenkins ran in from 5 yards out.

"Their defense came out in a different alignment than we practiced, but after we corrected it we were able to run the ball," said Miller, who had five players rush for more than 30 yards.
