Northside Christian 48, Southwest Florida Christian 7

ST. PETERSBURG — Northside Christian ran and then ran some more on its way to the victory over Southwest Florida Christian Academy.

The Mustangs set the tone for the evening with a daring onside kick that they recovered. Running back Chris Culbreth then gave his team the lead with a 1-yard touchdown run, his first of three for the night.

From that point, Northside Christian dominated with a defense that kept the Kings' quarterback under heavy pressure and a running attack that amassed more than 300 yards. Culbreth had 138 of those yards on 16 carries, all in the first half.

By the time the third quarter started, the Mustangs led 41-7.
