Football: Clearwater 34, Dixie Hollins 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Clearwater used strong special teams play to beat Dixie Hollins 34-0 on Friday, earning its first win of the season.

The Tornadoes (1-3) began the special teams dominance with a blocked punt early in the first quarter, which led to a field goal. They then took the next two punts from the Rebels (0-5) back for touchdowns. One for 48 yards by senior Collin Lonsberry, and another for 55 by senior Craig Parsons.

"(Special teams are) a big part of the game," coach Tom Bostic said "About a third of the game, so we try and spend as much time as possible on it."

Jordan Leston was Clearwater's leading contributor on offense, completing 8-of-16 for 100 yards and one 25-yard touchdown pass to Adam Harris. Running backs Harris and Anthony White combined for 89 yards on 18 carries.
