SARASOTA — Out-of-Door Academy scored 34 unanswered points in the second half in a 41-17 comeback victory against Admiral Farragut on Friday in the Class B region semifinals.

The Blue Jackets got on the board first with a 45-yard touchdown run by Josh Burch with 6:52 left in the second quarter. From there, the Blue Jackets looked as if they had the game in control, forcing a safety and kicking a quick field goal with just a few minutes to go in the half.

The Blue Jackets also scored on a 53-yard punt return for a touchdown before the half. The Thunder struck back with a 5-yard touchdown run by AJ Strong to make it 17-7 at halftime.

Then the Thunder wiped out the deficit in the second half with five touchdowns.

"I told them that we needed to step up and play, and forget about the mistakes and they went out and did just that," said Out-of-Door coach Brett Timmons. "Now we just have to get ready to go for next week."

Thunder running back AJ Strong led his team with 21 carries for 212 yards and three rushing touchdowns. Quarterback Brian Ragone completed 9-of-13 for 110 yards and two total touchdowns.

Notably for the Blue Jackets, Burch completed 6-of-6 for 109 yards and one rushing touchdown.
