Palm Harbor University 28, Clearwater Central Catholic 14

CLEARWATER — Palm Harbor University and new coach Mark Haye got a huge mental boost Friday night when the Hurricanes jumped out to a 14-0 lead over Clearwater Central Catholic and won 28-14.

"CCC has great coaching …they are a playoff team every year and they are always competing for their district title," Haye said. "It helps our kids and it's always good to get the win."

On PHU's first drive, quarterback Ja'Tyuan Landing scored from 15 yards out. He went on to finish the game with 112 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Billy Pavlock scored on a 15-yard run and Scott Santangelo scored on a 28-yard run for the Hurricanes.

After falling behind 14-0, CCC put together a 14-play drive, capped by a 16-yard touchdown pass from Eric Miller to Nick Newton. Miller was 9-for-14 for 111 yards and Newton had five receptions for 53 yards.

Each team's junior varsity unit scored one touchdown.
