Berkeley holds on for win


© St. Petersburg Times, published October 1, 2000

ST. PETERSBURG -- Northside Christian's Matt Daniels came off the field eventually. But only after Berkeley Prep's Carson Bassett intercepted the Mustangs' chance for a comeback at the Bucs 25-yard line with 30 seconds left in the game and brought down a 16-13 win on the road.

Daniels, one of only three Northside players over 220 pounds, played every down, including his 27-yard touchdown run that put the Mustangs up 13-9 midway through the third. However, Daniels' efforts could not sink the Bucs with 1:30 left in the game. Berkeley quarterback Vince Chilura sailed a 28-yard fade to Jason Kochlka that doomed Northside. Mustang quarterback David Mare gave Northside one last gasp of air on the ensuing possession. With less and a minute to play, Dare drove the Mustangs to the Buc 41-yard line. But there, on first-and-10 with 30 seconds to go, Dare threw his second and most costly interception of the game.

Berkeley's Jon Orebaugh and Derek Brammer split 125 yards of rushing and came up with time-consuming first downs that eventually ate away at a smaller Northside defense.

Kochlka was good on a 36-yard field goal to start the game's scoring in the second quarter. Northside went three and out, but shortly after, Daniels picked off Berkeley's Chilura for his second interception and returned it 41 yards for the touchdown.

Chilura got it all back two possessions later to close the half with a 2-yard touchdown run. The Bucs led 9-7 at halftime and came up with their third win of the season, though coach Frank Sullivan was disappointed with his team's performance.

"If we play like that again, we won't win another game for the rest of the season," Sullivan said. "We cannot have lapses like that."
