Canterbury 35, Boca Raton 20

ST. PETERSBURG — Brent O'Neal caught two touchdown passes from Desean Thomas, then Jeremy Dolan added two fourth-quarter rushing scores as Canterbury beat Boca Raton on Friday night.

The Crusaders' defense set up one of O'Neal's scores with an interception.

Early in the third quarter, Boca Raton's Charlie Cowley bulldozed his way into the end zone for his second touchdown to cut Canterbury's lead to 21-20.

But the Crusaders turned to Dolan, who finished with 75 yards rushing, in the fourth quarter, and Jake Holsinger picked off a Boca Raton pass and ran it back 50 yards to thwart a late drive.

"We didn't do our best this game," Crusaders coach Stephen Dudley said. "We need to cut back on the mistakes. But we have a young team. We have only two seniors, and I'm proud of the whole team."

  1. Trump fallout: Bucs' DeSean Jackson to make 'statement' Sunday

  4. Rays Tales: Who's the team MVP? It's a vexing proposition

    The Heater

    Given that the Rays' season is — barring a much bigger story — going to end next Sunday, this is the time to reflect on what they did over the past six months — honor the good, acknowledge the bad and note some of the more interesting.

    Typically, that starts with the MVP.

    Corey Dickerson, left, and Steven Souza Jr. typify the conundrum: some good, some not so good.

    TAMPA — As veteran RW Ryan Callahan was riding a stationary bike before Friday's exhibition game, he felt nervous. There was anxiety.
