Clearwater Central Catholic's hot offensive start to the season came to a screeching halt tonight after Tampa Catholic pulled out a 13-10 overtime win. A week after scoring 48 points against Lely, CCC could never get things going.
Mike Gregory, who replaced legendary coach Bob Henriquez, led his Tampa Catholic team.
CCC's Jeff Smith did have an nice play early on. He raced 78-yards but got pulled down near the goal line. Connor Dorris punched it in for a quick lead.
But on the ensuing kickoff, TC's Bentlee Sanders turned on the jets for the 35-yard kickoff return. The Crusaders weathered the early defecit and picked up its first win of the season.
Tampa Catholic will travel to Tarpon Springs next Thursday. CCC will host Jesuit.
