But Freedom (3-1, 1-0 in 7A-7) scored nine points during ...

  • Football: Wharton 19, Freedom 17

  • Preseason football: Gaither 21, Wharton 14

    TAMPA — Gaither coach Jason Stokes said his halftime speech was unprintable. But whatever he said to his team, it worked. Unable to move the ball in the first half because of miscues and penalties, Gaither rallied from a two-touchdown deficit, took a second-half lead and held on for a ...

  • Football: Jesuit 29, Auburndale 21

    TAMPA — Jesuit first-year coach Matt Thompson had a feeling. He witnessed a sluggish week of practice and said he thought his team might be a little flat to start the playoffs. He was right. Jesuit struggled against a 3-8 Auburndale team but did just enough to outlast it 29-21 ...

    TAMPA — Going into its home finale against Plant, Alonso was still clinging to playoff hopes. Sure, the hopes were slim and involved scoreboard watching, but hope was there — for a while. But after a scoreless first quarter, Plant flexed its muscle, grabbing a lead and never trailing  en ...

  • Football: Jefferson 28, Chamberlain 24

    TAMPA — Chamberlain certainly didn’t make it easy. In fact, to hear Jefferson coach Jeremy Earle tell it, the Chiefs came out and punched his team right in the mouth. But by the time the scuffle ended, Jefferson was still standing, the owner of a 28-24 win and a berth ...

  • Football: Middleton 26, Blake 21

    TAMPA — It may have seemed like neither team wanted to capitalize on the other’s mistakes, but when it counted the most Middleton made just enough plays to outlast Blake 26-21 on Friday night for its first victory of the season. Middleton took a second-half lead, but Blake came back ...

  • Football: Wharton 41, Riverview 14

  • Football: Jefferson 39, Robinson 22

    TAMPA — Robinson pushed, scratched and clawed and briefly managed to make it a game. But for most of the night Deiondre Porter and Mondreas Lofton had their way as Jefferson jumped ahead, allowed a rally then pulled away for a 39-22 win.

  • Football: Sickles 28, Durant 0

    TAMPA — Ray Ray McCloud was his usual self Friday night, piling up plenty of yardage for Sickles. But one of McCloud’s key contributions came on special teams, where he blocked a field goal attempt. Already leading 14-0 late in the second quarter, Sickles benefitted from the block, adding a ...
