Football: Spoto 14, Dunedin 7

DUNEDIN — Spoto overcame a tough week to record a 14-7 win over Dunedin on Friday.

"Our defense totally dominated the entire game," Spartans coach Dale Caparaso said.

Spoto (2-3, 2-2) marched down the field after a blocked punt by Darrian Harris. On the ensuing play the Spartans got a little fancy to put their first points on the board. Jaylon Davis threw to Geronimo Allison, who in turn threw a pass to Bryan Barr for a 30-yard score to go up 7-0.

Dunedin's Chris Askew had two interceptions in the first half but the Falcons (2-4, 2-3) could not capitalize.

Early in the third quarter, Dunedin's Douglas Forman scooped up a fumble and returned it 45 yards to even the score at 7.

Spoto later capitalized on a short punt by the Falcons. A few plays later Davis hit Allison with a 2-yard pass to make it 14-7.

The Spartans were without four starters, who were suspended for disciplinary reasons.
