SPOTO 7, SARASOTA BOOKER 0

What began as a deadlock resulted in Spoto (2-5, 1-1) earning a shutout to avenge last year's 55-point loss to Class 3A, District 11 rival Booker (4-3, 1-1).

Spoto's Tim Randolph dashed 30 yards for the only score in the second quarter. He tallied 66 yards on 11 carries on the night and sparked the Spartans' defense.

On the ensuing drive, Alex Byers ended Booker's threat at the 30-yard line with an interception. Spoto's momentum carried into the second half, as they stopped Booker on three consecutive plays inside the 5-yard line.

Maurice Brooks led the Tornadoes with 80 rushing yards, but two red-zone fumbles in the fourth quarter ruined any chance of a comeback and gave Spoto its first shutout of the season.

"This week I didn't want our guys to be good, I wanted them to be perfect," Spoto coach Dale Caparaso said. "Our defense was just that. We took our program to the next level."
