SARASOTA — A decision to shun a field goal for a missed two-point conversion, in part, led to Calvary Christian finishing regulation in a tie at 16 Friday night at Cardinal Mooney. Nonetheless, it all worked out for the visiting Warriors, who defeated the Cougars 19-16 on Aaron Shahriari’s 25-yard field goal in overtime.

Key plays: After taking a 13-9 lead on Alex Laccabue’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Keoki Abasial, Calvary Christian (3-1) opted to try a pass that fell incomplete instead of kicking an extra point. Coach Todd Yoder, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, figured a six-point lead would have been better than five points at that point. But later in the game, the Warriors settled for a tie instead of a narrow win in regulation when Shahriari kicked a 30-yard field goal.

Key drive: A nine-play, 79-yard scoring drive was kept alive when offensive lineman Alex Kurleman recovered a fumble by Laccabue. On the ensuing fourth-down play, Shahriari booted the tying field goal. The first key drive for Calvary Christian came when the visitors capitalized on the second of three turnovers by Cardinal Mooney quarterback Jack Koscho with Laccabue scoring on an 11-yard run on a scramble.

Stars of the game: Laccabue completed 17-of-26 for a game-high 188 yards and a touchdown. Teammates D’andre Ferguson and Amari Burney each had seven receptions with Ferguson gaining 88 yards and Burney 56.
