Football: Pinellas Park 28, St. Petersburg 3

ST. PETERSBURG — Three fourth-quarter turnovers quickly transformed a tight contest into a 28-3 blowout victory for Pinellas Park over St. Petersburg on Friday.

Sean Covington put the Green Devils (2-4, 0-2) ahead in the second quarter with a 49-yard field goal. But the Patriots (4-1, 2-0) responded with the first of two Garrett Nevitt touchdowns when he carried it in from a yard out.

It stayed 7-3 until midway through the fourth when a Pinellas Park punt bounced off receiver Maurice Hemingway and into the path of three Patriots rushing downfield. Pinellas Park took over at St. Peterburg's 25 and scored on a 2-yard run by Tahrelle Mosley. The Patriots then recovered a fumble on the kickoff and scored in one play, a 25-yard Nevitt run. An interception on St. Petersburg's next drive led to the final Patriots TD.
