Football: Largo 35, Boca Ciega 20

GULFPORT — Derrick Doss took the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown then ran and threw for touchdowns to lead the Packers.

"He's a beast," Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said.

The defense, which allowed 218 yards, kept Boca Ciega in it. In the second quarter, the Pirates tied it on Bobby Runcie's 33-yard pass.But a big kick return by Doss set up his 3-yard touchdown run.

After an errant Pirates punt, Doss faked an outside run and threw the ball to quarterback Juwan Brown, who faked a defender and scored a touchdown.

The Pirates cut the gap to eight on Runcie's 1-yard run and touchdown pass to Caleb McCullough.But Largo sealed it on Harry Brown's 41-yard run.

"I put this game on me," Pirates coach Antez Brinson said. "I've got to help the players keep their focus."
