Football: St. Petersburg Catholic 83, Cornerstone Charter Academy 6

ST. PETERSBURG — Coach Steve Dudley got his first victory and a Gatorade shower as St. Petersburg Catholic topped Cornerstone Charter Academy 83-6 Friday. "We needed that (victory)," Dudley said.

Jimmy Briggs started the scoring for the Barons on sixth play of the game when he took a handoff and raced up the field for a 44-yard TD. The visitors then made the mistake of punting to Ryan Green, who took the ball at the 35-yard line and into the end zone for his first score of the night. The Barons scored twice more in the quarter.

CCA could not find any scoring room as Pat Artise intercepted the ball to end the first half. The Barons' defense did not allow an offensive TD as defensive linemen Joe Uhatafe and Elevisi Halapio led the team with six tackles apiece; both also recovered fumbles. Halapio's was returned 30 yards for another TD.

The game ended the same way the first half did when CCA's quarterback was picked off again, this time by Peter Powers.

Green finished the night with 11 carries for 220 yards and five TDs. SPC's Toddren Macon also finished with 182 yards on eight carries for three TDs.
