Football: Pinellas Park 17, Dunedin 12

PINELLAS PARK — Coming off last week's loss and facing a 12-0 halftime deficit Thursday, Pinellas Park rallied for a 17-12 victory.

"(Dunedin) came out hungry and made plays in the first half," Patriots coach Kenny Crawford said.

Dunedin (0-3) went ahead on Keon Samuels' 10-yard touchdown run, then Pinellas Park (2-1) fumbled the kickoff and Sherrod Harrell caught a 9-yard pass from Anthony Diviney to go up 12-0.

"We go to (Harrell) quite a bit and expect a lot out of him," Falcons coach Jack Benson said.

But the Patriots answered with 5- and 20-yard TD runs from Michael Smith in the third quarter. Matt Gaskins hit a 40-yard field goal.

"Michael Smith is the ultimate team player," Crawford said of Smith, who finished with 155 yards. "Last week he only carried the ball four times but he always does what's best for the team."
