Berkeley 4-0 after beating St. Petersburg Catholic

Brett Zinober overcame foul weather and an early interception to lead Berkley Prep to a 17-10 come-from-behind non-district victory over St.Petersburg Catholic.

Zinober struck gold with just 12 seconds left in the first half hitting his favorite target Alston Barrow for a 29 yard touchdown and a 10-7 halftime lead.

"We've been working on that play all week long,"said Buccaneers coach Al Pisano. "It really lifted us up going into halftime."

The Bucs (4-0) trailed 7-0 at the end of the first quarter after Barons running back Mark Emanuele scored on a 12-yard run following Zinober's early interception.

"I was thinking about two years ago when we played them (St.Petersburg Catholic) in a jamboree, I was 1 for 3 with two interceptions and one TD," said Zinober of his interception. "Unfortuntely the TD was for them."

Zinober came right back after the Barons (1-3, 1-1) threw an interception of their own driving the Bucs down field for a 36-yard Matt Hill field goal.

On the opening drive of the second half Zinober picked up where he left off, capping a 44 yard drive with a slashing 27 yard touchdown run.

The Barons came back, adding a 22-yard Robby Joyner field goal in the third quarter and missing on three chances from the Buccaneers 28-yard-line with under a minute remaining.

"Big plays hurt us again," said Barons head coach Todd St. Louis. "We made the plays all night. Unfortunately, the big plays didn't go our way."
