Football: Cape Coral Island Coast 28, Tampa Catholic 0

It's tough to win when your quarterback spends most of the evening running for his life.

That was the situation Tampa Catholic found itself in during Friday's Class 2B, Region 3 semifinal at Cape Coral Island Coast.

The host Gators chased freshman Chivarsky Corbett all over the field while holding the Crusaders to just 11 rushing yards in a 28-0 victory.

"Their defensive line is the best we've seen all year," said Crusaders coach Bob Henriquez. "We tried a lot of different blocking schemes and they'd work for a bit but then they'd adjust."

Island Coast's defensive front, keyed by senior Aaron Lynch, a Florida State commit, held Tampa Catholic to negative yardage on 15 of its 63 offensive plays.

Corbett completed 15 of 32 passes for 109 yards.

The Crusaders (5-6) trailed 7-0 at halftime and got a big second-half boost when they recovered a fumble by Gators junior running back Louis King at their own 5.

Tampa Catholic drove the ball down to the Island Coast 23, but a fumbled pitch, a sack and a false start moved the Crusaders back to the 44, forcing a punt. On the ensuing Gators drive, senior quarterback Nelson Candelario faked a pitch and raced 86 yards to the 1. He scored on the next play to effectively deflate the Crusaders.
