ST. PETERSBURG — With Largo tuning up for the playoffs and Gibbs closing its season, both teams wanted to finish the regular season on a high note. Largo dominated from the start Friday en route to a 42-21 victory.
"Tonight was a night to get rid of the mistakes," Packers running back Derrick Doss said. "We had some, but we have to get better."
Largo opened the scoring on its opening possession. Harry Brown finished the drive with a 2-yard run. The teams traded kick returns as Gibbs' Gary Simon tied the game with a 75-yard return. Doss took the ensuing kickoff back 95 yards.
After Largo got a stop, Juwan Brown found Lakeif Daniels for a 78-yard touchdown pass to give Largo a 21-7 lead. Then Juwan Brown ran in a 5-yard touchdown, and Doss scored on a 13-yard run.
For the second time, Simon returned a kickoff for a touchdown, this time for 95 yards.
The Packers answered as Juwan Brown found Reggie Moore for a 75-yard touchdown pass.
