Football: Boca Ciega 33, Tarpon Springs 20

TARPON SPRINGS — Denzal Dillard ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns for the Pirates.

Boca Ciega took an early 14-3 lead. But the game turned in the fourth.

The Pirates, up 21-13, recovered a botched snap at the Spongers 30, leading to Trey Bennati's field goal. On the ensuing kickoff, Kenyatta Merriex was tackled at the 10. Then he bobbled a snap and fell on it in the end zone for a safety.

The Pirates returned the free kick to the Spongers 24 and sealed it on Dillard's 15-yard touchdown. His first score came from 38 yards.

"I am happy for the seniors. They have worked hard and bought into the program," Boca Ciega coach Antez Brinson said. "I said before the week if we eliminated avoidable penalties and mistakes, the only team that can beat Bogie is Bogie"
