Football: Osceola 36, Clearwater 17

CLEARWATER — Senior Austin Lawrence's 38-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the second quarter helped swing the momentum to Osceola in a 36-17 victory over Clearwater.

"I saw the ball on the ground, attacked it, ran it in and that got our momentum going," he said.

Warriors running back Courtney Burge ran for 73 yards and a touchdown. Lawrence also added a 5-yard TD run in the second half.

Lawrence constantly pressured Tornadoes quarterback Jordan Leston into mistakes.

"The defense kept us in the game during the first half," coach George Palmer said. "We played much better in the second half."

The Tornadoes were led by the Adam Harris, who had eight receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.
