Football: Blake 31, Lakewood 28

ST. PETERSBURG — Blake's players say they are the only ones who believe they can make the playoffs. And thanks to a 29-yard field goal by Carlos Andrade as time expired, they remain in the chase.

"I'm really proud of our guys and their attitude," Blake coach Harry Hubbard said. "They felt they could win and played like it."

Blake (4-4, 3-1 Class 3A, District 8) and Spoto are tied for second, a game behind Jefferson (though Spoto beat it 56-8 on Sept. 24).

The teams combined for four touchdowns during the third. The third, Dante Fowler scooping up a fumble by quarterback Zain Gil­more and returning it 11 yards, put Lakewood (4-4, 2-2) ahead 28-13.

But Marquis Kelly hauled in a 36-yard pass from Gilmore. And the Blake defense followed by forcing a fumble that Corey Harris returned 74 yards.
