Football: Indian Rocks Christian 48, Calvary Christian 7

CLEARWATER — After an 0-2 start to the season, Indian Rocks Christian found its rhythm and came jumped all over Calvary Christian 48-7 Friday night.

IRC (1-2) opened with a 60-yard drive, capped off with a 13-yard touchdown from senior running back Taylor Huff, who finished with nine carries for 78 yards and three touchdowns. Later in the quarter Vinny Capabianca picked off a pass and took it the distance for 85 yards to put IRC up 14-0.

Calvary Christian (1-2) then woke up — briefly.

Allen Barnes put Calvary Christian on the board with a 54-yard scamper for a touchdown to make the score 14-7 to close out the first quarter. IRC started to control the clock with Huff doing more damage with a 5-yard TD run.

Then quarterback Casey Woods connected with Sean Culkin for a 38-yard touchdown to catapult the lead to 27-7 late in the second quarter.

Field position became an issue as Calvary gave IRC a short field. Ryan Williams easily waltzed into the end zone to make it 34-7 before halftime.

Calvary started to wear down as the fourth quarter began, with Huff and Joey Wendt adding to an insurmountable lead.

"This win was exactly what we needed and it really was a confidence builder for us," IRC coach Mark Buchanan said.
