2A region basketball: Calvary Christian 57, Kissimmee New Dimensions 56

For the second straight season, Calvary Christian won a tight game, 57-56, against Kissimmee New Dimensions in the Class 2A region quarterfinals.

Last season, Calvary had to rally in regulation and won in double overtime. On Thursday night, the Warriors had the lead and held on as New Dimensions missed a shot at the buzzer.

"It was big for us to win a playoff game on the road again," Calvary Christian coach Mark Carter said.

The Warriors led by as many as 10 points in the third quarter and withstood a rally. Stephen Brown hit two free throws to make it 57-53 with 30 seconds left.

Kyle Wiedinger led Calvary Christian with 20 points. Alex Govan hit four 3-pointers, and Tyler Daniel scored three 3-pointers for the Warriors.

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
