Football: Osceola 34, Boca Ciega 24

GULFPORT — Austin Lawrence's 10-yard touchdown run on fourth and 1 helped Osceola earn its first district win of the season.

"It was a nice win," Osceola coach George Palmer said.

Trey Bennati's 32-yard field goal in the third put Boca Ciega up 24-21.

But Osceola drove 74 yards, capped by Lawrence's run, to take the lead. After the defense forced a three-and-out, Courtney Burge scored on a 24-yard run to make it 34-24.

Osceola led 21-14 at the half thanks to a break on a field goal. Lawrence grabbed a botched snap and ran 15 yards for a first down. Soon after, Daviel Clarke scored on a 3-yard run.

Boca Ciega had a shot to score before the half. It drove to the Osceola 22, but Savion Smith's pass was picked off by Dylan Shytle in the end zone.
