Football: St. Petersburg 28, Northeast 0

ST. PETERSBURG — In a game with nine fumbles, St. Petersburg proved to be more resilient, blanking Northeast 28-0 Friday.

The Green Devils (3-1) drove 65 yards on their first drive, Maurice Hemingway capping it with a 3-yard touchdown run. He finished with 143 yards on 15 carries.

Northeast (2-2) then lost the first of its five fumbles. On the first play of the Vikings' next drive, Davon Conyers stripped the ball from a back and ran 10 yards for a score.

Both teams opened the second half with back-to-back lost fumbles. The Vikings' miscue proved more costly, as it set up a 2-yard TD run by Keegan Oberholzer.

"They've played really hard the last two games," St. Petersburg coach Joe Fabrizio said. "And they didn't lose the shutout, which was a big goal."
