SEMINOLE — Indian Rocks Christian took a big lead and held on through Seminole's 12-point comeback in the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Blake Farver and wide receivers Sean Culkin and Tyler Ostheim scored all of IRC's touchdowns. Farver completed 5-of-8 for 173 yards and two touchdowns to Culkin. Ostheim rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns.
The Golden Eagles' ability to convert on fourth down was crucial. On fourth and 5, Farver completed passes of 28 and 35 yards to Culkin. Ostheim then scored on a 5-yard rush to the end the half.
"Tyler is an athlete. He is very tough to cover," Farver said. "Working with him and Sean (Culkin) is a blessing."
Seminole missed several scoring opportunities because of fumbles, which often gave IRC good field position. The Warhawks dominated the fourth quarter. Quarterback Trevor Sands completed a 51-yard score to Teddy Willis and ran for a 20-yard touchdown.
Farver credited the offensive line. "I've never had this much protection in my life," he said. "They really put their hearts out tonight."
