Football: Boca Ciega 24, Dixie Hollins 12

GULFPORT — Dixie Hollins took to the air against Class 6A, District 7 rival Boca Ciega, but turnovers doomed the Rebels, who fell to 0-9, 0-5 after a 24-12 loss.

Quarterback Tyrie Adams fumbled inside the Boca Ciega 30-yard line on the Rebels' opening drive. The Pirates (4-5, 2-3) took advantage as a leaping Devin Riley snagged Savion Smith's 34-yard pass, falling into the end zone. Caleb McCullough extended Boca Ciega's lead in the second quarter on a 2-yard run.

Trailing 14-6 in the third, Rebels defensive lineman Martez Smalls got an interception, but Adams' deep pass was picked off at the 1. Adams was 16-for-27 for 194 yards and one touchdown, a one-handed grab by James Redner-Gilmartin in the fourth quarter, cutting the lead to 21-12. But Adams was picked off again at midfield late.
