Football: Steinbrenner 13, Freedom 6

LUTZ — A wet, torn-up field led to a sloppy game that included seven fumbles and an interception as Steinbrenner beat Freedom 13-6.

"When you're playing like that, in the mud, it just makes it extremely tough," Steinbrenner coach Floyd Graham said.

Steinbrenner's offense totaled just 96 yards and the Warriors (3-1) didn't attempt a pass in the second half.

Trailing after a Freedom (0-4) touchdown midway through the second quarter, Zack Jones fielded the ensuing kickoff at the 15-yard line and took it the distance. Cornerback Daniel Fernandez returned an interception 23 yards for a touchdown in the third.

Freedom drove to the Steinbrenner 27 in the final minute but a false start and four incomplete passes sealed the win.
