Football: Boca Ciega 21, Seminole 17

SEMINOLE — The last game of the season for Boca Ciega and Seminole began with the first 24 points coming off turnovers.

Boca Ciega took an early lead Friday when Antione Benjamin blocked a punt and returned it 6 yards for the touchdown.

It wasn't until the second quarter when Seminole's Brett Phillips ran one in from 5 yards out that either offense put a full drive together for a score. Phillips' TD run put the Warhawks (0-10) up 17-14, their first and only lead of the game.

The Pirates (4-6) took the lead back late in the second via a 34-yard touchdown pass from Bobby Runcie to Diquez Robinson, making the score 21-17. Boca Ciega held the small margin for the remainder of the game.

"We've got a great group of guys that we wanted to send off the right way," Pirates coach Antez Brinson said. "We've had some ups and some downs this season, but I wanted make sure we made a concerted effort as a staff, also as a team, to send our seniors off on a good note."
