Football: Northside Christian 14, Shorecrest 3

ST. PETERSBURG — Mustangs captains Jimmy Van Deilen and Jeremy Smith combined for 208 rushing yards as Northside Christian got its first victory of the season and its second in a row over the Chargers, 14-3 Friday night.

Van Deilen had 130 yards, and Smith 78.

"We just ran right at them," Northside coach Andre Dobson said. "Nothing fancy, we just had to dominate the rushing game."

The Mustangs took the lead in the first quarter after a fake punt by Shorecrest failed. The ensuing drive culminated with Van Deilen's 54-yard touchdown. The Chargers answered with a field goal near the end of the quarter.

Cody Swain's 27-yard TD run in the fourth sealed the win, which came despite 12 flags for 100 yards. "That's going to happen when you have a young team," Dobson said. "You've just got to fight through it."
