Football: Berkeley Prep 41, St. Petersburg Catholic 19

ST. PETERSBURG — On a night that was a game of two halves, Berkeley Prep overcame a three-point deficit at halftime to win 41-19 Friday.

St. Petersburg Catholic (2-3, 0-2) got into the end zone first after a 4-yard run by Stephon Williams, but the Bucs (6-0, 1-0) answered when Brad Mayes found Bubba Olivera for a 46-yard TD pass.

Barons quarterback Jack Sheehan connected with Markqus Ruppell for a 15-yard score late in the second quarter. The Barons allowed only 10 first-half points.

Berkeley's Chris Williams ran away with the third quarter, scoring three times. He finished with 196 yards on 19 carries. The Barons narrowed the margin in the fourth when Sheehan completed another touchdown pass to Ruppell. But Sheehan threw two interceptions in the final eight minutes.
