Dixie Hollins 20, Pinellas Park 12

PINELLAS PARK — In a game swamped by offensive miscues, Dixie Hollins waded to a late win.

The teams combined for 14 fumbles and three interceptions. Each team scored on the other's mistakes. Dixie Hollins scored first on a blocked punt recovered in the end zone by Brandon Wilcox. The Patriots tied it on a 21-yard interception return for a touchdown by Greg Green. Each failed to convert extra-point attempts, leading to a 6-6 halftime score.

The Rebels put together back-to-back scoring drives in the fourth quarter. The first ended on a 4-yard rushing touchdown for Jacob Bellman and the second on a 12-yard strike from Jesse Hevia to Gerard Atkins.

The Patriots attempted a late comeback, scoring on a pass from Cody Nowakoski to Andrew Laughery. But the rally faltered when Nowakoski was picked off.
