Boca Ciega 22, Pinellas Park 14

PINELLAS PARK — After a sloppy and unproductive first half, Boca Ciega rallied to victory over Pinellas Park. The first quarter consisted of only two possessions. After a long drive Pinellas Park (3-2) scored on a 4-yard TD rush by Oraian Bentley. Bentley also ran for the 2-point conversion. In the second quarter Cody Nowakowski intercepted a pass from Boca Ciega's Shaquille Bradford to set up the Patriots' final score. Bentley rushed for 1 yard to put the Patriots ahead 14-0.

Their problems began immediately after. Kicker Cody Arnold attempted four kicks, resulting in penalties, before being replaced by Tony Murphy for the fifth.

"I came out in the second half believing. I didn't give up on myself or my team," Bradford said.

Bradford rushed and threw for a touchdown and completed two 2-point conversions for Bogie (2-2). He completed 6-of-15 for 109 yards.

  5. Bucs Roberto Aguayo kicks off 2017 on the wrong foot


    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.

    If that weren’t …
