At Pinellas Park
Pinellas Park 14, Springstead 14 (varsity score)
The host Patriots displayed a balanced offense and built an early lead. But they were unable to keep it when the varsity squads played.
The junior varsity started the game and helped Pinellas Park go up 14-0. The Patriots added to that once the varsity stepped onto the field, with quarterback Jesse Hevia scoring on a short run and throwing a 35-yard touchdown pass to Sam Orth, a transfer from Minnesota. Ahead 28-0 with a combined junior varsity and varsity score, the Patriots watched as Springstead scored touchdowns in the third and fourth quarter to close the gap. The Patriots had five players rush the ball, and Hevia completed passes to three receivers.
"I thought we played pretty well," Pinellas Park coach Kenny Crawford said. "We got a lot of people involved and moved the ball."
