Football: Largo 21, Dunedin 7

DUNEDIN — Behind 103 yards rushing from Claxton Boykins and a stout defensive performance, Largo defeated Dunedin in the opener for both teams.

"In the second half the defense made the difference," Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said. "My hat goes off to my coordinator Matt Lepain."

After giving the Falcons a first down on consecutive penalties to open the game, the Packers forced a punt that was blocked by Chris Johnson. On the next play Boykins scored from 7 yards to give Largo the lead.

Dunedin struck right back when Trevonte Anderson hauled in a 20-yard pass from Anthony Diviney for a score.

After the teams traded fumbles and Largo forced a punt, Harry Brown scored on a 3-yard run.

"Any loss hurts but the boys fought hard," Falcons coach Jack Benson said. "This was a game of field position and we lost."
