Spring football game: Palmetto 31, Northeast 14

At Palmetto

The Vikings let an early lead slip away amid a barrage of big plays in the second half of Thursday's spring game.

Northeast was in control in the first half, jumping out to a 14-0 lead on touchdown runs of 6 and 10 yards by Tavares Dunlap.

Soon after, Palmetto started chipping away at the deficit. By the fourth quarter, the Tigers went ahead 17-14.

The Vikings came back but were stopped on fourth and inches at the Palmetto 38. The Tigers scored on the next play then again off of a fumble on the ensuing kickoff.

"We played pretty well in the first half," Northeast coach Jay Austin said. "But we let things slip away in the last four minutes of the game."

Eli Pedigo was 5-of-7 passing. His favorite target was Auggie Sanchez, who had three receptions for 65 yards.
