Football: Jesuit 13, Sarasota 9

TAMPA — Jesuit was down in the first half, but not out in the second. Trailing 9-0 after the first half (with a pair of missed field goals), the defense produced a shutout in the second half. Jesuit scored the go-ahead touchdown with a minute left to knock off Sarasota 13-9.

"We were able to make some nice adjustments at halftime and get back in the game," coach James Harrell said. "We were able to play solid defense and get the hard-nosed running going at the end when we needed it."

After Sarasota won the first half, its running game was shut down in the second. The Sailors didn't gain a first down until their fourth possession of the second half.

Jesuit (2-0) cut the lead to 9-6 when Bryce Walker (97 receiving yards) caught a 20-yard wheel route. The Tigers took the lead for good in the final minute when Patton Chillura hit Travis Johnson on a 15-yard lob.
