Football: Osceola 13, St. Petersburg 10

ST. PETERSBURG — Osceola blocked a potential tying field goal with three minutes left to preserve a 13-10 victory over St. Petersburg.

Transportation difficulties kept the Warriors (1-2) from arriving until an hour after the scheduled kickoff time. Warriors quarterback Andrew Matyk ran it in from 11 yards in the first quarter out to start the scoring. Matyk extended to lead to 13-0 late in the second on an 8-yard pass to tight end Zach Hehn. Matyk finished with 78 yards on 6-for-12 passing.

St Petersburg's offense struggled until the third quarter when running back Laroy Williams scored on an 8-yard run. He finished with 105 of the team's 170 rushing yards on 14 carries.

Kicker Sean Covington, who brought St Petersburg to within three on a 30-yard field goal with eight minutes left, had his 49-yard try blocked by Austin Lawrence.
