CCC 35, St. Petersburg Cath. 34

CLEARWATER — Clearwater Central Catholic and St. Petersburg Catholic combined for 856 yards of offense, but the outcome was decided on a single play that came down to less than an inch.

The Marauders (4-3) led 35-28 when Barons linebacker Zach Baker scooped up a fumbled lateral and raced 82 yards. SPC attempted a two-point conversion pass for the win, but after the catch Keelyan Bryant was stopped inside the 1-yard line.

CCC gained 263 yards rushing, 174 yards passing with 22 first downs. SPC fell to 0-7 despite 271 yards on the ground, 148 through the air and 18 first downs. Neither team punted the entire game.

"Tonight was an opportunity to put all the pieces together," Barons coach Tod Creneti said. "It's tough to come up short."
