Tampa Catholic 31, Sarasota Cardinal Mooney 7

SARASOTA — Tampa Catholic took advantage of opportunities and returned to its winning ways.

The Crusaders (1-2) forced seven turnovers and held the Cougars to 97 yards of total offense. Running back Henry McCloud capped three drives that totaled 17 yards with scoring runs, and senior linebacker K.C. Schweiberger tallied the final touchdown on a 5-yard return of a blocked punt.

A 33-yard interception return by Michael Grady led to McCloud's 1-yard score in the first quarter. Grady also recovered a muffed punt in the fourth quarter, which set up a McCloud touchdown run.

Cardinal Mooney got its only points on the final play of the first half as Ben Bobish blocked Matt McLaughlin's field-goal attempt and returned it 62 yards. Steve Ierulli Jr., who entered the game as the top rusher in the Sarasota/Manatee area, had 70 yards.
