ST. PETERSBURG — On homecoming at Northside Christian, Indian Rocks spoiled the celebration even after star running back Ethan Englebert twisted his ankle on the game's opening play.
The Golden Eagles had a trio gain most of the team's 247 yards rushing and all six rushing touchdowns. Jonny Sitton rushed 11 times for 98 yards, Josh Accetturo had 79 yards on just four carries and fullback Lou Mason rushed 15 times for 57 yards; all three had two touchdowns each.
IRC (8-0, 3-0) intercepted Robbie Williams three times, with junior defensive back Tyler Ostheim and senior outside linebacker Patric Yancey returning pickoffs for touchdowns.
Williams completed 9 of 18 for 102 yards and the lone Mustangs (2-6, 1-2) touchdown, a 36-yarder to junior Chris Culbreth, who had four catches for 63 yards.
