Football: Landmark Christian 26, Shorecrest 7

ST. PETERSBURG — Landmark Christian defeated Shorecrest 26-7 in Shorecrest coach Phil Hayford's final home game. Hayford is retiring at the end of the season after 32 years as Chargers coach.

"I was talking to the kids and looking back and there's a whole group of my old players; it's a pretty neat deal, I'm glad they came out," Hayford said. "It means an awful lot to me."

Shorecrest took the lead early in the second quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by Dakota Hirsch. That drive was set up by a fumble recovery at the Landmark Christian 44 by Garrett Schulte.

In the second half, Landmark running back Keland White took over. He scored on a 52-yard run on the first offensive play after halftime, then on the next drive his 72-yard run gave the Patriots a 13-7 lead. White later threw a 64-yard touchdown to Justin Simpkins.

Shorecrest (2-7) forced three turnovers, two fumbles and an interception by Andrew Lanza. Alex Drexler led the Chargers with 81 rushing yards on 21 carries.

"Our guys played hard tonight I can't complain about what they did," Hayford said.
