CLEARWATER CENT. CATHOLIC 48, ST. PETERSBURG CATHOLIC 0

Clearwater Central Catholic scored three quick touchdowns in the first quarter before the referees delayed the game as the lights failed to turn on at St. Petersburg Catholic's Joe Paul Stadium. When the lights came on, the spotlight was on QB Jeff Smith, who was responsible for three of his team's first four scores as the Marauders routed the Barons.

KEY DRIVE: CCC had good field position, rarely starting on their side of the field except for the first possession of the second half when the Marauders received the kickoff. CCC punted only once.

PLAY OF THE GAME: On the second play from scrimmage, CCC ran a screen to CJ Cotman, who had all five offensive linemen downfield blocking. The sophomore playmaker weaved for a 39-yard score.

STARS OF THE GAME: Cotman and fellow sophomores Dilan Scargle, Jervon Newton, Jerquan Newton, Tyler McDonald, and Jakob Parks all made plays. Scargle and Jervon each had a touchdown while McDonald and Jerquan were constantly in the Baron backfield.

STAT OF THE GAME: In Smith's brief stint, the Marauders quarterback was 5-for-6 for 79 yards and two touchdowns, plus a 14-yard scoring run in the second quarter.
