SEMINOLE — In a game marred by mistakes and sloppy play, senior Adnan Karic kicked a 32-yard field goal and the Pinellas Park defense posted a safety to hold off Osceola 19-14 on Friday.
Patriots senior Pierre Johnson rushed six times for 75 yards, the highlight a 42-yard run in the second quarter. Senior quarterback Taron Williams was 5-for-9 for 46 yards and a touchdown, a 20-yarder to Dylan Brown that gave the Patriots the lead.
Senior defensive back Keith Dunigan registered the safety.
"It was just one of those games that someone had to win and someone had to lose. We were lucky enough to come out with the win," Pinellas Park coach Kenny Crawford said.
Osceola was led by Daviel Clarke (54 yards, TD) and Andra Walls (62 yards).
