Football: Berkeley Prep 42, Golden Gate 7

TAMPA — Berkeley Prep dominated Golden Gate 42-7 Friday to stay undefeated on the season.

Behind a strong rushing attack by senior Nelson Agholor, the game seemed to be over in the first half. With the Buccaneers taking a 42-0 lead into halftime, Agholor shined as he rushed for 212 yards and four touchdowns on 11 carries.

"I thought I played well tonight but I give a lot of the credit to our offensive line," Agholor said. "They played like veterans tonight for such a young line and all year they have been so helpful for not only me but our team as a whole."

The Bucs defense was stellar, giving up only 10 passing yards while recording two interceptions. One interception came late in the second quarter as cornerback Vic Pellegrino returned the pick for a 35-yard touchdown.

Wide receiver Reggie Barnes also performed well, catching three passes for 79 yards and a TD..
