#GoBucs - Football: Berkeley Prep 13, Springstead 0


Congrats to the Bucs who slugged out a tough win against Springstead on Friday night!

Go Bucs!

Football: Berkeley Prep 13, Springstead 0


TAMPA — After enduring a lighting delay and a constant downpour, the Eagles and Bucs slugged it out. With their passing game out the window due to the conditions, the Bucs opened in an "L" formation with three backs in the backfield and pounded away at Springstead, primarily with sophomore Gordon Stetson. The Buc defense played lights out, keeping Springstead off the scoreboard and in third-and-long situations.

Key drive: After Springstead's Robert Holdway took the opening kickoff 70 yards, the Bucs forced a turnover on downs and took their opening drive 79 yards on 14 plays in for a touchdown. Stetson was critical, hitting spin moves along the way, but his 17-yard touchdown run was aided by a gaping hole in the middle of the Eagle defense.
Play of the game: In the fourth quarter, Stetson blasted through the line and raced to a 30-yard TD.
Stars of the game: Stetson had 18 carries for 103 yards in the first half. The Berkeley defense held the Eagles to 107 yards of offense and did not allow a third-down conversion until Springstead's final drive
Stat of the game: After trying some nifty spin moves in the first half, Stetson ground the Springstead defense down with 31 carries for 196 yards and two TDs.
Final word: "We have one of the best defenses in the county. We knew they were going to run out the ball and we stopped them, especially on third down." — Stetson
