Football: Pinellas Park 35, Clearwater 19

CLEARWATER — Down 7-0, Pinellas Park scored 35 points in the second quarter to beat Clearwater.

Four of the touchdowns came on the ground, two by Marquis Samuel. He finished with 21 carries for 75 yards.

For Clearwater, undisciplined play stifled its offense. It tallied 327 yards, but eight penalties for 72 yards and five turnovers were the story of the game. Though Rob Yarbrough passed for 241 yards and two touchdowns, he was intercepted twice. Additionally, two fumbles and a botched punt led to all of the Patriots' points.

"Sudden change in high school football is huge," Pinellas Park coach Kenny Crawford said. "If you can capitalize on it … momentum in high school football is king."
