Football: Chamberlain 17, Gaither 15

TAMPA — Chamberlain took advantage of Gaither mistakes and held on for a 17-15 victory in a Class 5A, District 5 game Friday.

The Chiefs (2-6, 1-1) snapped a five-game skid despite being dominated in the statistics. The Cowboys (3-5, 0-2) had more total yards (405-161) and first downs (18-7) but never led. Two Gaither fumbles led to Chamberlain's 10 second-half points, including Tevin Ordonez's 20-yard touchdown fumble return that put the Chiefs up 17-9. The Cowboys botched a field-goal attempt with a poor snap, had a potential tying extra-point kick blocked after Shug Oyegunle's first of two touchdown passes to Carlo Perello and came up short on a two-point conversion after Oyegunle and Perello connected on a 75-yard scoring play with 9:06 left. Kelvon Powell ended Gaither's final drive with an interception.
