Football: St. Petersburg 30, Pinellas Park 12

ST. PETERSBURG — With the opportunity to win the district title and host its first playoff game in 25 years, St. Petersburg beat Pinellas Park 30-12.

"This is a huge event for the school," coach Joe Fabrizio said. "Everyone is already excited and talking about it."

The Green Devils took a 16-0 lead on a 6-yard touchdown run by Calvin Robinson, a 3-yard run by Rashad Lewis and a 27-yard field goal by Sean Covington.

The Patriots battled back, with Iman Smith catching a 3-yard pass from Brandon Hames.

But Robinson answered with a 36-yard touchdown run, and Lewis added a 92-yard burst to put the game away.

"We have a senior group, and we expect them to play at their best," Fabrizio said. "We don't do a lot, but we're confident in what we do."
