Preseason football: Dunedin 28, Dixie Hollins 7

ST. PETERSBURG — The first half was full of bone-jarring hits and many miscues. But in the second half the Falcons settled in and scored three touchdowns to win the preseason matchup.

"We still have a lot of things to work on," Dunedin coach Jack Benson said.

Dunedin scored in the second quarter on a 24-yard touchdown run by running back Jezreel Saunders for a 7-0 lead. The Falcons outgained the Rebels 126-5 in the first half.

Dixie Hollins picked up its initial first down on the second play of the second half and struggled offensively to get anything going. Falcons cornerback Sharod Harriel intercepted a Dana Harrington pass and returned it 60 yards to set up Trevante Anderson's 7-yard touchdown run for a 14-0 lead.

The Rebels finally broke through with a touchdown on Brandon Bell's 1-yard run with 46 seconds remaining.
