Indian Rocks Christian 35, Keswick Christian 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Indian Rocks Christian and Keswick Christian played even through most of the first quarter. After a Jonny Sitton 28-yard touchdown run, the Golden Eagles never looked back.

"This was a huge start to our season," IRC coach Mark Buchanan said. "This really gives us a lot of momentum.

IRC pounded the Crusaders up front all night, rushing for 242 yards and scoring all of their touchdowns on the ground.

Sitton led the charge with 72 yards and a touchdown and got help from Ethan Englebert, who finished with 66 yards, and Lou Mason who had 48 yards and two touchdowns.

The Golden Eagle defense was also up to the task, limiting the Crusaders to 70 yards of offense.

Patric Yancey also scored two touchdowns for the Golden Eagles and Englebert kicked all five extra points.
