Football: Pinellas Park 42, Osceola 10

SEMINOLE — Pinellas Park forced three fumbles and rushed for 190 yards and six touchdowns in a season-opening victory.

Adam Stephany got Osceola on the board first with a 29-yard field goal. Pinellas Park followed with 42 unanswered points.

Michael Smith rushed for 75 yards on 16 carries with three first-half touchdowns to give the Patriots a 21-3 lead at halftime. Ivan Carasco added a 13-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Tias Climes closed out the run with two rushing touchdowns.

Quarterback Jesse Hevia also had a strong performance completing 8-of-14 for 138 yards and rushing for 28 yards on five carries.

Pinellas Park coach Ken Crawford gave credit to one of his defensive performers as well. "James Amlaw made every tackle on defense, special teams, and made key blocks at receiver," Crawford said.
