Football: St. Petersburg 19, Boca Ciega 13

ST. PETERSBURG — With steady rains falling and only one completion through the first three quarters, St Petersburg quarterback Corey D'Angelo hit Anthony Woods deep down the middle of the field for a 48-yard winning touchdown with less than six minutes to play.

Until the fourth, the Green Devils (2-3, 0-1) relied primarily on their ground game. DeAngelo Reeves had 156 yards on 23 carries, including a 41-yard touchdown in the first to tie the score. D'Angelo punched it in on a QB keeper in the second quarter, putting St Pete ahead before lightning delayed the end of the first half.

Denzal Dillard scored on a 12-yard run in the first quarter for Boca Ciega (0-5, 0-1). But 11 penalties for 90 yards stymied the Pirate offense numerous times, allowing St Petersburg to stay close.
