Football: Dunedin 19, Blake 18

TAMPA — Dunedin put a damper on Blake's homecoming with a narrow victory.

After a slow first quarter, after which Dunedin led 3-0, the game picked up in the second.

Blake took the lead on junior DeAndre James' 90-yard run. In all, the lead changed hands six times.

After Blake regained the lead on a 22-yard pass by junior Zain Gilmore in the third quarter, Dunedin answered in the fourth. It put together a 12-play, 90-yard drive capped by what turned out to be the winning field goal, a 28-yarder by Teddy Aloizakis.

The Falcons' running game proved key, Blake coach Harry Hubbard said.

"I told my guys that Dunedin was really strong up front on both sides of the ball," he said. "We knew what they would do. It's just a matter of getting it done on the field. We'll learn from this."
