Football: Jesuit 48, Dunedin 21

DUNEDIN — Dunedin (2-5, 2-3) kept things close for much of the night, but the Falcons eventually fell to ninth-ranked Jesuit (6-1, 6-0) 48-21 in a Class 5A, District 8 matchup Friday night.

The Falcons trailed only 21-14 in the second quarter when Kevin Newman scored on runs of 3 and 1 yard as the Tigers pulled away.

Jesuit quarterback Tommy Eveld hooked up with his favorite target, receiver Travis Johnson. Eveld was 19-of-23 for 310 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 21 yards and a touchdown. Johnson had 10 receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown.

"It was a tough game," Jesuit coach James Harrell said. "We know we have to overcome any mistakes we make and our guys were able to do that."

Dunedin received contributions from senior quarterback/kicker Anthony Diviney and senior receiver Chris Askew. Diviney was 12-of-20 for 211 yards passing and two touchdowns. He also ran for one rushing touchdown. Askew had four receptions, 149 yards and both touchdown catches.
