The Sarasota Millionaires can take a punch. After Jared Speight’s 90 yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the opening play of the game put the Bay Area Pirates up 8-0, the Millionaires (6-3) responded with a scoring drive to tie the game on its first possession and never looked back in a 44-29 victory over its division rival Saturday night in New Port Richey. “They had a kick return right at the start of the game and I said to myself, not again!”, a happy, but weary head coach Ernest Givens said. “But we settled down and I told them we were going to be in a dog fight. That team never quit and we didn’t quit tonight.” After last week’s loss to the Florida Veterans when Sarasota gave up a 14 point lead in the final quarter, the Millionaires played its best game of the season not only avenging a loss to the Pirates on their home field back on February 16th, but also putting them back in position for a second or third seed in the upcoming UFF playoffs.
