A. FARRAGUT 17
INDIAN ROCKS 14
LARGO — Cortavious Givens rushed for 141 yards and Sean Young kicked a 49-yard field goal as Admiral Farragut defeated Indian Rocks Christian.
Both teams struggled to find their rhythm early in the game, as dropped passes and penalties plagued each team.
Junior quarterback Dalton Collins scored a 25-yard rushing touchdown to give Admiral Farragut a 10-0 lead going into halftime.
In the second half, Indian Rocks Christian came out of the locker room set on fixing the mistakes that cost it early on. The Golden Eagles’ Theo Anderson rushed for two touchdowns and collected 62 yards rushing on just six carries in the second half. The changes the Golden Eagles made still weren’t enough to stop the Blue Jackets’ offense, which drove down the field and chewed about eight minutes off the clock before Anthony Evans caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Collins in the fourth quarter.
Indian Rocks Christian got the ball back with just over two minutes remaining and began rallying behind sophomore quarterback Garret Ross Johnson. But the momentum shifted when the Blue Jackets’ defense held the Golden Eagles on a fourth down inside their own 30-yard line.
