Bradenton Southeast vs. Dunedin: Spring football game

At Dunedin

Spring game-breakers: Blair Jordan, making his first start for Dunedin at quarterback, was 8-of-14 for 176 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Jordan's 10-yard touchdown pass to Avery Chisholm with 1:29 left in the fourth was the winner. … Senior-to-be defensive lineman Ian Murray recovered a fumble at the Southeast 11-yard line with about two minutes remaining to set up the Falcons' winning score. … Dunedin running back Adaris Bellamy started and played through the first two series after halftime, carrying the ball 12 times for 24 yards. … Wide receiver Jarvontae Macafee gave the Falcons a 16-7 halftime lead when he outfought Southeast defensive back Jonathan Dowling for a jump ball in the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown catch as the halftime clock expired.

Did you know?: Dunedin got a safety in the second quarter when a Southeast snap went past quarterback Bruce Kelly at the 15-yard line and rolled out the back of the end zone. … Dunedin had six false starts in the first half but didn't have another after halftime. … Dunedin's offense went three-and-out on its two third-quarter drives.

Audible 1: "I thought at halftime the kids thought we had this game won. But Southeast came to play. My hats off to them — they beat us pretty good in the second half, but we got a couple breaks." — Dunedin coach Mark Everett

Audible 2: "I came out nervous, but when we started clicking, everything started opening up perfectly. The pass game was working pretty well. But there were mistakes made, and we have stuff to work on." — Jordan

  2. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars


    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

  3. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  4. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    The Heater

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
