Football: Alonso 33, Gaither 7

TAMPA — Alonso senior Anthony Chickillo, who started his career at Gaither, had his most memorable performance in a game marred by two bench-clearing incidents.

The tight end/defensive end scored the first three touchdowns of his career as the visiting Ravens clinched a Class 5A, District 5 playoff berth.

Chickillo, who transferred to Alonso (4-5, 2-1) two years ago, scored on a 1-yard run, 12-yard pass from Dylan Fisher and 35-yard interception return.

After Chickillo's return, with 1:10 left and on Gaither quarterback Shug Oyegunle's fourth interception, the teams engaged in two altercations halted by game officials, coaches and school administrators.

During the final minute, Gaither (3-7, 0-3) took a knee twice with Alonso's defense 20 yards from the line of scrimmage. The teams exited on their respective sidelines.
