CCC prevails in rough game


© St. Petersburg Times, published January 14, 2001

CLEARWATER -- Clearwater Central Catholic blanked Tampa Catholic 3-0 in the late game of the doubleheader.

Although CCC outshot TC 32-7, the game was not decided until late. CCC (12-6-1) led 2-0 until the final minutes and controlled the ball for the majority of the game. In the seventh minute, Billy Williams booted a shot that bounced off TC goalie Jeremy Castelucci. Dave Miller, following the play, put it away for the first goal of the game.

"I saw that Billy looked to shoot," Miller said.

"I just followed up on the rebound and put it in."

In the 15th minute, Zach Stone passed to a wide-open Chris Kein in the box, leading to a 2-0 Marauders lead.

Tempers flared in the next scoreless 60 minutes as players pushed and shoved behind the play, leading to a few yellow cards.

However, when Tampa Catholic winger Chris Blaze went down with what seemed like a serious injury. The Marauders kicked the ball out of bounds instead of breaking toward the Crusader net so Blaze could be attended to.

After Blaze was given attention, Tampa Catholic captain David Smith returned the favor on the next throw-in by intentionally giving the ball back to the Marauders. "It's a relatively common occurance," CCC coach Jim Harte said. "You just hope the other team returns the favor."

In the 75th minute, CCC put the game away when Ted Anderson headed in a centering pass from Williams (who had two assists) for a 3-0 lead.

"We pride ourselves on not letting our opponents a good clear look at goal," Harte said.

"We are trying to play simple. If each guy makes a simple pass rather than one guy doing it all, eventually, an opening will present itself. We are a very unselfish team."
