Football: Dunedin 14, Gibbs 12

ST. PETERSBURG — In a game that saw rain extend halftime to more than an hour, Dunedin had two big defensive plays in the fourth quarter to edge Gibbs.

Tramaine Batten put Dunedin ahead 14-12 with his 5-yard run. On their final two possessions, the Gladiators turned the ball over. On what looked to be a run-option play, Maurice Hall's pass was intercepted by Robert Hedgeman at the Dunedin 30. Then Sam Miller intercepted Patric Jones to seal the Falcons' win.

"It's hard to throw on us," Dunedin coach Max Smith said.

In Gibbs' third possession of the second half, Quincy Turner ran 61 yards down the left sideline for a 6-0 lead. A 26-yard TD pass from Mack Benson to Stancio Howard and Shaquille Dixon's conversion run put Dunedin up 8-6. Jacquez President's 80-yard kickoff return put Gibbs back up by four.
