Keswick's inexperience shows in loss to Berkeley

ST. PETERSBURG — Berkeley Prep returns its starting quarterback (Destin Nichols), running back (Kevin Yent) and receiver (Nelson Agholor).

Keswick Christian is breaking in a new quarterback (Jaylin Coleman) and running back (DeJuan Wright).

The difference showed Thursday night.

The Buccaneers used their experience to cruise to a 20-0 victory in a preseason game that was called after one half because of lightning.

"We're a young team and this was a good test for us," Crusaders coach Rick Sanson said. "Coleman was starting his first game at quarterback. He didn't fumble and he didn't throw an interception."

The Buccaneers scored on a 1-yard run by Yent and a 24-yard run by Chris Williams to go ahead 14-0. Berkeley Prep made a fourth-and-9 to keep its first drive alive and a third-and-8 to continue the second drive.

In the second quarter, the Buccaneers scored again on a 27-yard pass from Nichols to Agholor.

"We wanted to stress the fundamentals," Berkeley Prep coach Dominick Ciao said. "We still need to work on some things, but I thought our guys played in that half."
