That was a touchdown in the second half, a single quarter, actually, the “Live Action” part of the scrimmage, and with it Santa Rosa took a 6-0 lead.The Tarpons came back with a TD of their own, scored a second one, and that was a final, 13-6.“You know, it’s a scrimmage so we’re not really out to try to win it,” head P.I.

Later, on second-and-goal from the three, it was Nino again, this time around right end. He fell in and Angel Fernandez made the extra point.Want the whole story?
