Football: Clearwater Central Catholic 42, St. Petersburg Catholic 7

CLEARWATER — Leading up to its contest against St. Petersburg Catholic, Clearwater Central Catholic deemed it as the "holy war" in Pinellas County. In the end, though, it became a proclamation of how well the Marauders have improved under the tutelage of coach John Davis.

Junior running back Justin Goodloe had what he described as his best game of the season with 121 yards and four touchdowns on 11 carries to lead the Marauders to a 42-7 thrashing of the Barons on Friday night.

"I had four touchdowns against Mitchell, but this was easily the best complete effort I've had all year because of the way we moved the ball as a team and our entire team effort," said Goodloe, who finished the 2010 campaign with 867 yards on 152 carries. "Coach has completely turned this program around, and we believe we've made the steps to not only compete with Fort Meade next year, but win the district. We've become a harder working team and a more disciplined team. We are excited about what lies ahead."

The Marauders (7-3) were eliminated from playoff contention last week after a 27-21 loss to the Miners, but they responded with a season-ending win against the Barons (1-9) that typified the type of team CCC has become. The offense outgained the Barons by more than 100 yards, but, more important, the defense stopped SPC for negative yards or no gain on 13 runs and were penalized only once.

Goodloe scored his first touchdown on a 3-yard run after a blocked a punt. Then, after the defense forced a fumble on the Spartans' second series, Goodloe scored from 1 yard out.

Goodloe had a 10-yard scoring run and quarterback Nick Newton (5-for-6, 62 yards) found Steve Ochsner just before halftime as the Marauders opened up a 28-0 lead.

SPC sophomore running back Ryan Green rushed for 124 yards on 21 carries and scored the Barons only touchdown on a 50-yard run.

    UPDATE, 4:27: In making the deal, the Rays add an elite-level defender to an infield that could use the help. But it also raises a number of questions, such as will they now move Tim Beckham to 2B? Does this mean Matt Duffy is not coming back this season? Is Daniel Robertson or Taylor Featherston going to …
