ST. PETERSBURG — Keswick Christian won its district opener over Carrollwood Day 30-27 on a 26-yard field goal Friday by Ryan Broaderick as time expired. After taking over at its 30 with 1:03 left Keswick drove to the 11. A 43-yard run by Jalyn Coleman with 45 seconds left set up the field goal.
Carrollwood took a 19-6 lead midway through the third quarter behind two touchdown runs by Robert Davis.
Keswick responded with a long touchdown drive aided by an unsportsmanlike penalty against the Patriots sideline that was capped off by a 4-yard run by Taylor Angell. On the next Patriots possession, quarterback Deuce Gruden fumbled and Carl Curtiss recovered for the Crusaders. On the following play, Angell ran for a 37-yard touchdown.
Keswick extended the lead midway through the fourth on a 21-yard run by Kristian Craig.
