Football: Tarpon Springs 34, Dixie Hollins 20

TARPON SPRINGS — Dixie Hollins had chances against Tarpon Springs, but committed mistakes at inopportune moments late.

Down 27-20 with 1:53 left, Rebels quarterback Dana Harrington launched a 67-yard touchdown to Melvin Love, but it was called back on an illegal procedure penalty. Harrington fumbled on the next snap and Tarpon recovered.

On the next possession, Spongers running back Kenny Blanch's 44-yard touchdown run put Dixie Hollins away 34-20.

"Dixie … played very well, and they came out in the second half and challenged us," Tarpon Springs coach Atif Austin said.

Tarpon Springs quarterback Louis Pappas ran for two touchdowns and threw for another.
