Carrollwood Day 42, First Academy 27

TAMPA — In Carrollwood Day's first football game in school history, the Patriots got coach Lane McLaughlin his first win.

Led by junior quarterback Billy Embody, the Patriots accumulated more than 500 yards of offense. Embody was 14 for 23 for 308 yards and four touchdowns.

Leading 28-27 with just less than eight minutes left, the Patriots were facing third-and-5. After appearing to be sacked, Embody connected with junior Matt Monteilh for a 50-yard touchdown.

"(Embody) made a lot of plays like that in six-man last year," McLaughlin said.

After a turnover by Leesburg First Academy, Monteilh ran 25 yards for a score. Along with Darius Bing, the two rushed for 122 yards and had 255 receiving.

    Blogs

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
