Football: Clearwater 34, Northeast 27

CLEARWATER — Spencer Rice's interception led to Jordan Leston hitting Devijion Smith for the winning touchdown with 20 seconds remaining, propelling Clearwater to a 34-27 upset win over Northeast, but the Vikings still are the district runnerup.

Leston was 12-of-25 passing for 183 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 67 yards and two TDs for the Tornadoes (3-6, 2-3). Smith had five receptions for 107 yards and two touchdowns. He had the third and final interception of Northeast's Ryan Davis as well.

The Tornadoes held junior running backs Keith Harrington and Donterio Fowler to less than 100 yards rushing. Harrington (10 rushes, 73 yards) and Davis (20 for 79) each had a TD for the Vikings (7-3, 3-2) and Devon Neath returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown.
