Football: Admiral Farragut 21, Keswick Christian 13

ST. PETERSBURG — Even without Rayshawn Jenkins, Cortavious Givens and Napoleon Maxwell, Admiral Farragut pulled out a 21-13 victory over Keswick Christian.

Both defensives played well to start. However, the second time the Blue Jackets had the ball they would not be denied. Alvin Cunningham caught a 26-yard touchdown from Colby Robinson halfway through the first quarter.

During the second quarter, the Crusaders' Taylor Angell was picked off by Dontae McGee. Robinson then found Demetrius Lewis for a 33-yard completion. Toddrick Macon ran 5 yards before getting tackled at the 1 and Robinson did the rest, scoring on a quarterback sneak.

With 37 seconds left in the first half, Keswick's defense forced a punt. The snap soared over Louie Bobelis' head and the Crusaders (2-2) recovered at the 2-yard line. Kristian Craig scored on the next play to end the half 14-7.

The Crusaders capitalized on another high snap on a punt in the third quarter. After recovering at the 5, Craig went up the middle to score his second touchdown. The PAT was blocked. Late in the third quarter Angell fumbled, which led to another score for AFA (3-1).

    The weekend sweep by Texas and four-game overall losing streak has some Rays fans - based on their tweets and emails - questioning the team's ability to make the playoffs and suggesting they might as well trade away their key parts.

  2. What are the odds the Rays trade for Brad Hand or Pat Neshek?

    Blogs

    In each of the last three seasons, the Rays have been sellers at the trade deadline. They shipped away David Price in 2014, got rid of David DeJesus and Kevin Jepsen in 2015 and flipped Matt Moore, Steve Pearce and Brandon Guyer in 2016.

    Padres left-hander Brad Hand has excelled in his two years with the team.

  4. Ronde Barber says comments about McCoy 'sensationalized'

    Blogs

    If anyone thinks Ronde Barber was throwing shade at Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, think again.

    "That anyone would assume I would say the best player on the defense isn’t a bad dude is irresponsible and sensationalizing a quote to serve their own means,'' Ronde Barber said.
