Football: St. Petersburg Catholic 39, Cardinal Mooney 33

ST. PETERSBURG — Ryan Green scored all five of St. Petersburg Catholic's touchdowns and finished with 310 yards rushing and 91 yards receiving in a 39-33 win.

Cardinal Mooney took a 13-0 lead, but the Barons answered on their second possession as Green took a handoff 65 yards to help make the score 13-7.

On another Barons possession, Green took over again. On his second carry of the game, he reversed his field and ran down the opposite sideline for a 45-yard touchdown. Jimmy Briggs had a 39-yard field goal, and the Barons led 16-13 at halftime.

Briggs added a 31-yard field goal in the second half and played linebacker, recording 17 tackles.

Green's performance carried over into the second half. On his first carry, he went 47 yards for another touchdown. Later in the third quarter, freshman quarterback Jack Sheehan found Green down the sideline for a 58-yard score.

Cardinal Mooney didn't back down, making it a one-possession game with five minutes left in the fourth quarter.

But Green put the comeback out of reach when he broke loose for his fifth touchdown, running 50 yards.
