ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg slowly erased an early two-score deficit to overcome a tough Seminole team 33-21 Friday.
The Green Devils (5-2, 2-1) took their first lead in the fourth quarter on a 65-yard run by David Jones. After the Warhawks' attempt at a fake punt failed on the ensuing drive, St. Petersburg closed out the game with a 16-yard rushing score by Maurice Hemingway.
Seminole (0-7, 0-3) built a 14-0 advantage early with an 80-yard scoring pass from Noah Weller to Christian Steiermann, and a 35-yard run by Brandon Trezza.
The Green Devils cut the lead on a pair of short touchdown runs by Hemingway. On the opening drive of the second half, the Warhawks went back up by nine.
On the next series, a long completion from Keegan Oberholzer to Jones helped set up the third of Hemingway's four touchdowns.
