Winter Park Trinity Prep 28, Berkeley Prep 22

TAMPA — Berkeley Prep's opening drive indicated that it would run over Winter Park Trinity Prep, as the Buccaneers cruised 68 yards for a touchdown. The Saints had other plans, stopping the Bucs with big-play defense.

The Buccaneers' only first-half score came on a hook-up from freshman quarterback Destin Nichols to receiver Pierce Hunt. Nichols struggled the rest of the game, at one point throwing three straight interceptions, helping Trinity to a 21-6 halftime lead.

Berkeley tried to mount a second-half comeback, scoring two touchdowns and adding a safety. But the Saints intercepted Nichols three more times.

The Saints made the most of their opportunities on offense as quarterback J.J. Wartski hit receiver Tony Covington 11 times for 149 yards.

    NEW ORLEANS — Perhaps it was the chance to witness the first USF-Tulane game ever, or an opportunity to frolic in the French Quarter for a weekend. Or both.

    1. Saturday's triumph will do little to fortify USF's strength of schedule, but its strength-of-character quotient might have increased.
