East Lake 59, Pinellas 6

EAST LAKE — East Lake controlled its homecoming game with a stifling defense and ground attack. The Eagles (3-2) held Pinellas Park (0-5) to minus-23 rushing yards and created six turnovers.

Seven players scored eight touchdowns and Travis Mullen kicked a 26-yard field goal as East Lake scored on five of its first six possessions.

Sam Shaffer scored on the Eagles' opening drive with a 6-yard run and completed touchdown passes to Stephen Nunley and Nick Franz in the first half.

In the third quarter, Jamaal Wilburn returned an interception 25 yards for a score. On the kickoff the Eagles recovered a fumble, and Wilburn scored again on a 22-yard run.
