  • Region final notebook: Lakewood out to thwart history

    South Sumter has won 12 straight games and 23 of its last 24. The Raiders have been a fixture in the playoffs since 2007. Lakewood, meanwhile, has never advanced to a region final. Clearly, the Spartans will be big underdogs Friday, and coach Cory Moore is using that to motivate ...

  • Lakewood's defense a rock all season

    Lakewood's defense a rock all season Early in Lakewood’s season, when the offense was trying to find a rhythm, the Spartans defense was steady. In the middle of the season, when the Lakewood offense was scoring in bunches, the defense stayed consistent. In last week’s region semifinal against Tarpon Springs, with the offense sputtering early, the ...

  • Tarpon, Lakewood have no trouble finding the end zone

    Tarpon, Lakewood have no trouble finding the end zone Tonight’s Class 5A region semifinal between Tarpon Springs and Lakewood can be thought of more as a basketball game than a postseason football contest. The Spongers (7-4) are going to score often. The Spartans (8-3) are going to score often. There will be a blizzard of points, a barrage of ...

  • Can underdogs reverse results in Round 2 rematches?

    Can underdogs reverse results in Round 2 rematches? Round 2 of high school football playoffs typically brings rematches from the regular season — and sometimes the previous year’s postseason — and this week is no different. Are the underdogs wiser and armed with a winning game plan this time around? 8A: Orlando Dr. Phillips (11-0) at Plant (9-1-1) ...

  • Sunday Morning QB, playoff edition

    Sunday Morning QB, playoff edition Five things we learned Friday night 1. First round’s pretty predictable. Friday pitted the runners-up from one district against champions from another. The runners-up who did win — Pinellas Park, Jefferson, St. Petersburg Catholic and Tarpon Springs — were mostly expected to, and the champions rolled. If anything surprised us, ...

  • Football: Lakewood 51, Northeast 7

    ST. PETERSBURG — The third annual Mayor’s Cup between Lakewood and Northeast was supposed to be over by halftime.

    Football: Lakewood 46, Tarpon Springs 21 (with video) TARPON SPRINGS — Lakewood’s bus arrived 45 minutes late to take the Spartans to their Class 5A, District 8 game against Tarpon Springs.
