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.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31


    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win


    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State


    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
