Football: Jesuit 49, Steinbrenner 14

LUTZ — This Class 2A district showdown wasn't much of a game. Jesuit had 138 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and Patton Chillura threw for 154 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers also ran back a punt 45 yards for a touchdown.

In the first half Steinbrenner, on its 5-yard line, had a snap go over the head of quarterback Curtis Fitch for a safety. On the ensuing possession, Jesuit drove for a touchdown on a 24-yard run by running back Anthony Harrell. On its next drive Steinbrenner went from bad to worse, allowing another safety.

After another Jesuit scoring drive, Steinbrenner shocked the Tigers with a 99-yard kick return for a touchdown and its first score.

To end the first half, Tigers wide receiver Bryce Walker returned a punt 45 yards for a touchdown.

Chillura threw only one interception and kept his composure throughout. The Tigers defense stayed strong holding, Steinbrenner to 8 yards rushing and 111 passing.
