Spring football game: Bradenton Christian 41, Shorecrest 35

At Shorecrest in St. Petersburg

Bradenton Christian 41, Shorecrest 35

Spring game-breakers: The Chargers needed to find a playmaker to replace quarterback Hunter Tremaine, who is graduating. Jules Jouffroy showed he is capable of being one. Jouffroy, a rising senior, scored twice on short runs and returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. His third score, a 22-yard run, was set up on a 46-yard run by Dakota Hirsch off a fake punt. Jouffroy's final big play came on a 66-yard run that set up a 2-yard touchdown plunge from Hirsch on a quarterback sneak. …Alex Drexler had a 13-yard touchdown run in the second quarter for Shorecrest's other score and ran in a 2-point conversion. …The Chargers had trouble stopping the Panthers' R.J. Schooler, who scored three times, including an 84-yard touchdown run that gave Bradenton Christian a 28-27 lead.

Did you know? With the score tied at 35, Shorecrest marched down to the Panthers' 28-yard line but the drive stalled on a lost fumble. …Bradenton Christian converted a fourth and 2 on a run by Schooler to keep a drive alive and set up the winning score, a 1-yard run by quarterback Sean McCarthy with 17 seconds remaining. …Schooler left the game in the final minute with cramps. …Shorecrest tried some trickery with fakes off kicks (two punts, one field goal). Only one was successful. …There were six lead changes in the game. …The Chargers will have just four seniors this coming season. …Bradenton Christian had just 18 players available for Friday's game.

Audible: "Jules did a nice job of making some plays. So did Alex Drexler. A lot of that is from the offensive line doing the job up front. We have a lot of young guys there. On defense, we have to do a better job of wrapping up." — Shorecrest coach Phil Hayford
