Football: Pinellas Park 35, Northeast 14

PINELLAS PARK — Pinellas Park scored 22 unanswered points in the second half to beat Northeast 35-14.

Jeremi Powell wreaked havoc from the first play of the game as he sacked Northeast's Taron Williams for a 3-yard loss. Powell later finished a drive with an 11-yard TD run for Pinellas Park's first score.

When the fourth quarter began, Powell took a handoff and eluded a couple of defenders as he raced for a 50-yard score.

Northeast led 14-13 at halftime on two touchdowns by Demarkus Corbin, one on a blocked punt return and one on a 1-yard run. But the Patriots' Pierre Johnson picked off a pass in the third quarter and on the ensuing drive Iman Smith laid out to a catch a 15-yard touchdown from Brandon Hames on fourth and goal. Powell's 2-point conversion gave the Patriots the lead for good.

Johnson returned another interception 60 yards for a score.
