Calvary Christian 13, Northside Christian 7

CLEARWATER — Calvary Christian used its ground game and strong defense to control the first 45 minutes in its win.

Seth Cole scored on runs of 15 and 7 yards to give Calvary a 13-0 lead until late in the fourth quarter when Northside's Jimmy Vandeilen completed a 75-yard pass to Andrew Speake with three minutes left.

"Our kids kept their composure and fought through a furious rally with Northside," Warriors coach Chris Rivera said.

Calvary's Jordan Ankrom intercepted a pass from Vandeilen and caught a 50-yard pass from Buddy Adzima in the first quarter. Adzima also hit Zach Mueller for a 47-yard pass in the second.

"I don't think in any point in my mind, even with all the craziness that happened, in my mind I never felt like we were gonna lose it," Rivera said.

Northside missed field goals of 33 and 42 yards in the second half.
