East Lake 52, Seminole 6

EAST LAKE — Jamaal Wilburn carried 11 times — all in the first half — for 155 yards and two touchdowns, and East Lake's defense allowed only two first downs against Seminole.

The Eagles did not allow a first down until there was 25 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Their shutout bid ended with 7 minutes left when Evan Gardiner caught an 11-yard scoring pass.

The Warhawks managed fewer than 100 yards total offense as the Eagles recovered three fumbles and intercepted one pass.

Wilburn was just one of six East Lake players to score; his came from 35 and 40 yards. Leo Gilghrest had two rushing TDs (both from 15 yards) and Dylan Tinsley also ran for one. Drew Harwood had a TD catch, Chris Leppinen had a fumble return and Cameron Mitchell hit a 45-yard field goal.

    NEW YORK — A treasure, possibly worth half a million dollars, could lie behind a granite slab at the base of the Bloomingdale's flagship store in Manhattan in New York City, just a few feet from a window displaying designer handbags: a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.

    According to reports from 1930, this cornerstone of Bloomingdale's flagship store in New York City could have a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and other items entombed with instructions not to open for 200 years. The Ruth ball, if there and in good condition, could be worth a record $500,000. [ New York Times]
