On Friday night in Clearwater not only was it a rivalry game between Clearwater Central Catholic and Tampa Catholic, but it was a chance to advance past the second round of the class 3A State Playoffs.
In the first quarter neither team could get anything going offensively as they exchanged several punts. But by the second quarter, Tampa Catholic was able to get on the board first with a goal-line plunge from Kenny Bryant to make it 7-0 Crusaders.
Coming out of the half, CCC looked like a different team on offense, and the Marauders tied the game up on a 54-yard burst from Trey Larry.
Then with the game tied at 7 in the 4th, CCC was able to take the lead on a 32-yard field goal from Matt Fosnacht to make it 10-7, and that's how this one ended.
