Preseason football: Admiral Farragut 12, Orlando Agape Christian 6

ST. PETERSBURG — Admiral Farragut overcame its mistakes and held off a late drive by Agape Christian to win 12-6 Friday night.

As the second quarter began, Blue Jackets quarterback Colby Robinson found Brad Hyman-Muhammad wide open near the right sideline, and the receiver took it in for a touchdown. Two drives later, the Blue Jackets drove to the 14 but couldn't score before time ran out in the half.

The Blue Jackets fumbled on consecutive possessions in the third quarter, the second on a muffed punt. The Saints cashed in and ran 20 yards to tie the game.

On the ensuing drive, from the Saints' 13-yard line, Robinson again hooked up with Hyman-Muhammad, who spun past the goal line for the winning score.

For AFA coach Chris Miller, this game was about correcting mistakes and seeing what his new players can do.

"I was happy with the way we tackled," Miller said. "We were flying to the ball."

Agape Christian took the ball to the Blue Jackets' 2 in the second half, but fumbled with less than seven minutes remaining. Their final drive ended as the clock ran out.
