Football: Dixie Hollins 13, Clearwater 10

CLEARWATER — In a sloppy game that came down to the final play Dixie Hollins found a way to finish defensively, beating Clearwater 13-10 on the Tornadoes' homecoming night.

"It was an exciting finish," Dixie Hollins coach Mike Morey said. "(Defensive coordinator) Ed Bryant did a great job with the defense, getting them to finish the game."

Dixie Hollins was led by quarterback Dana Harrington and wide receiver/defensive back Alex Valentin. Harrington was 3-of-9 passing for 105 yards and two touchdowns, both to Valentin. Their 84-yard connection for a touchdown in the fourth quarter was the winning score.

Valentin also had a fumble recovery on defense.

Clearwater senior quarterback Rob Yarbrough was 18-of-31 for 289 yards and one 46-yard touchdown to wide receiver Branden Leston.

Tornadoes kicker Justus Mullin had an early 19-yard field goal and was preparing to try to kick the potential tying field goal when time ran out.
