Football: Clearwater Central Catholic 34, Hudson 0

CLEARWATER — Diquan Walker and Jeff Smith each scored two rushing touchdowns as Clearwater Central Catholic beat Hudson 34-0 Friday night.

Walker and Smith accounted for nearly half of the Marauders' total ground offense, combining for just under 100 yards. CCC (2-1) pounded the Cobras (0-2) from the air as well, with Blake Gomez and Jeff Smith adding another 151 yards.

After a slow start by both sides, the Marauders struck first blood with just under four minutes remaining in the first when Walker broke a tackle and sprinted 14 yards to the end zone. His run was set up by Gomez's 11-yard pass to Troy Olmo that converted a third down and short from Hudson's 25-yard line.

Clearwater Central wouldn't get into Cobra territory again until midway through the second when Michael Stevenson scored from 9 yards out, moments after Gomez barely averted a disaster by recovering his own fumble in the Marauder red zone.

Walker scored his second touchdown with a little more than a minute remaining in the half to put CCC up 21-0, and it never looked back.

Joey Caruso finished 2-of-9 passing for Hudson with minus-14 yards thanks to three key sacks. The Cobras rushed for 65 yards.
