Football: Pinellas Park 9, Seminole 3

PINELLAS PARK — Trailing with less than a minute to play, Seminole (2-6, 1-2) lined up at Pinellas Park's 5-yard line facing a fourth-and-1. Running back Trevor Sand, visibly tired after 30 rushes for 192 yards, took the handoff but was dragged to the ground a foot shy of the first down, preserving Pinellas Park's 9-3 victory Friday night.

Pinellas Park (4-3, 1-1) broke a scoreless tie in the second quarter on a 1-yard run by Michael Smith. Later in the third Smith broke off a 65-yard run on third and long, setting up first and goal at the 10. The Warhawks' defense stood strong, stopping Brandon Hames short of the end zone on fourth down. One play later, Sand was brought down in the backfield for a safety.

Regaining possession with 5:44 to play in the fourth, Sand drove the Warhawks downfield, gaining 45 yards on eight consecutive carries. But on third and fourth down the defense collapsed on Sand.
