For their own good

Pinellas: News and Notes
By Times staff
Published October 7, 2007
Times' Pinellas Super Seven
1. 1. Largo (5-0): The Packers' running game clicked with more than 400 yards against Pinellas Park.
2. Northeast (5-0): The Vikings have the inside track in Class 4A, District 9 after beating Boca Ciega.
3. Boca Ciega (4-1): Hard to drop the Pirates after playing Northeast tough.
4. Dunedin (4-2): The Falcons defense wreaked havoc in shutting out Clearwater.
5. Northside Christian (5-1): Danny Speake was everywhere for the Mustangs, scoring four touchdowns.
6. Keswick Christian (5-0): The Crusaders started strong, scoring 48 first-half points against Calvary Christian.
7. Tarpon Springs (3-1): This could change considering the Spongers were behind 17-0 against Land O'Lakes in a game that was postponed until Monday at 7 p.m.
Brinson on both sides of the ball
Northeast's Jeff Brinson gets his share of carries as a running back.
He's also seeing time as a defensive back.
The senior was in the secondary late in the game against Boca Ciega and responded with a fumble recovery and an interception that helped seal the Vikings' 16-13 victory.
"We experimented with having Jeff back there in the secondary this week," Northeast coach Jay Austin said. "I think we're going to do that some more."
Rescheduled football games
Tarpon Springs-Land O'Lakes will resume their game at 7 p.m. Monday at Land O'Lakes. The Gators led 17-0 at halftime Friday.
- Bradenton Bayshore and Lakewood will make up their game at 7 p.m. on Monday. The teams were tied at 7.
Curtis Fisher opened Friday's game for Keswick Christian with an 8-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. No big deal, right? But on the ensuing kickoff Calvary Christian's A.J. Williams responded with a 99-yard kickoff return of his own. That means in less than 30 seconds, two touchdowns were scored to start the game.
"That was absolutely crazy," Keswick Christian coach Rick Sanson said after the Crusaders' 48-14 win. "I've been here 10 years and I've never seen anything like that."
