Calvary has banner victory

LARGO - Calvary Christian's Web site will hoist what coach Dave Compton calls a "virtual banner" after the Warriors' 12-6 win over Winter Haven All Saints' Saturday night at Indian Rocks Christian.

Calvary (4-3) secured the school's most wins in a season and also a tie with Cambridge for best record among independent private schools in the area.

"It's our mythical independent championship," Compton said.

Without starting quarterback David Penn and linebacker Taylor Bennett, the Warriors rallied behind sophomore quarterback Lucas Spoerl (3 of 9, 49 yards). Spoerl's first completion went for 44 yards to Justin Mueller and set up Calvary's only touchdown, Charlie Robinson's 1-yard run in the second quarter.

Jeremy Centner added a 39-yard field goal before halftime to give Calvary a 10-0 lead.

All Saints' kicked an errant snap out of their end zone for a Calvary safety in the third quarter, then found the end zone once late in the fourth. Matt Kormann led all rushers with 73 yards on 14 carries for the Saints.

"We had to change our whole game plan," Compton said. "We're typically a passing offense, but our defense did what it needed to do tonight to win."
