Football: Admiral Farragut 34, Canterbury 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Canterbury had some lofty expectations coming into the season, competing in a district for the first time.

But Admiral Farragut schooled the Crusaders a bit Friday night, winning 34-0.

The Blue Jackets delivered two scoring drives on their first two possessions.

Freshman sensation Cortavious Givens contributed early and often. On the first drive he had a 32-yard run to ignite the Blue Jackets, followed by a 6-yard touchdown run by Toddrick Macon.

James Goodwin then returned a punt for 35 yards to put the Crusaders in scoring territory, but a stingy AFA defense kept them in check. Later in the quarter Rayshawn Jenkins connected with Robert Goddard for an 8-yard touchdown pass put AFA up 13-0.

The Blue Jackets came out after halftime with an impressive drive, coupled with several penalties by the Crusaders. Jenkins scored on a 1-yard sneak to put the Blue Jackets up 20-0 late in the third.

The Crusaders appeared to be outmatched as the game progressed, and the Blue Jackets controlled the clock.

Jenkins added a score, tossing a 25-yard touchdown to Alvin Cunningham as AFA went up 27-0 in the fourth. Givens rounded out scoring with a 1-yard run.

"Canterbury is a good football team and they played hard," AFA coach Chris Miller said

"They were short on numbers and battled attrition."

Givens finished with 87 yards on 13 carries. Canterbury's James Goodwin rushed for 100 yards on 13 carries.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.


    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
