Football: Steinbrenner 35, Chamberlain 28

LUTZ — Kendall Pearcey accounted for 227 yards and four touchdowns, including the winner with 1:15 remaining, as Steinbrenner knocked Chamberlain out of the Class 7A, District 7 playoff picture.

The senior, in his final home game, ran it in from the 4 to cap a 75-yard, 12-play drive as the Warriors. Pearcey rushed for 120 yards, also scored on runs of 91 and 4 yards and caught four passes for 107 yards, including a 64-yard score.

"Probably the greatest win I've ever had in my career," Pearcey said. "We all played our hearts out. The crowd was into it. Just an amazing game."

Chamberlain reached the Steinbrenner 24 with five seconds left. But Dakarai Highsmith's pass sailed out of bounds. Highsmith had 194 (and two scores) of the Chiefs' 395 rushing yards. Nick McNeal added 150 (and a score).
