Football: Hillsborough County roundup

Berkeley Prep 44, Middleton 6: The Berkeley Prep special teams swarmed Middleton to set up a number of short scores, and quarterback Brad Mayes threw four TD. The Tigers, under new coach Jeff George, fumbled on the first play and Buc running back Gordon Stetson carried it in for an 8-yard TD on the next play to put Berkeley Prep ahead 7-0 just 17 seconds into the game.

Bloomingdale 16, Strawberry Crest 7: Isaiah McIntyre threw touchdown passes to the quarterback he split time with last year, Tommy McLaughlin, and receiver Patrick Wiedrich to lead the Bulls. Arjay Smith put the Chargers in front early, before the Bulls rallied. On a broken play, McIntyre hit Wiedrich on a 35-yard score, and Alex Smith converted a 25-yard field goal.

Madison County 23, Tampa Catholic 6: The Crusaders fell behind 16-0 and despite improved play in the second half, could not rally. A long touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Kevin Knox midway through the third quarter trimmed the Crusader deficit to 16-6. The Crusaders played most of the game without Auburn commitment Nate Craig, the top-rated recruit in the 2016 class. Craig rolled an ankle on his only carry, a 4-yard gain, in the first quarter.

Brandon 21, Blake 20: Down 14-0, Brandon rallied. The Eagles tied the score on a two-point conversion run by Sheldon Green, then went ahead 21-14 on a deep fade pass from quarterback Isaiah Alexander to junior receiver Ryan Sass.

Jacksonville University Christian 42, Carrollwood Day 6: Carrollwood Day scored first on a Max Frankel TD reception, but didn't have enough firepower to hold off University Christian. Running back Willie Parker led the Patriots with 101 yards rushing on 15 carries.

Cambridge Christian 41, Calvary Christian 36: Senior Garrett Young threw four touchdowns to four receivers, rushed for two more scores and tossed a two-point conversion pass.
