Football: Admiral Farragut 46, Lakeland Santa Fe Catholic 7

LAKELAND — Admiral Farragut Academy arrived at Santa Fe Catholic 15 minutes late but took a quick lead and defeated the Hawks handily in a Class A, District 10 game Friday night.

Farragut went 80 yards on 12 plays to begin the game as running back Andrew Bauer scored from 1 yard. He also scored from 65 yards in the third quarter.

The next two touchdowns by the victors were set up by two fumbles on special teams as the Blue Jackets went up 33-0 at halftime.

"When you get desperate, you tend to do things you normally would not do, like trying to field a punt on the 2-yard line," Hawks coach Billy Dickerson said. "We play this game in seasons, and next week is our sixth season."

Polk County's leading rusher, B.J. Knauf, was held to 15 yards. Admiral Farragut's lead was big enough that there was a running clock in the second half.

The Hawks scored their only touchdown with seven minutes left as Knauf scored from 2 yards after two first-down runs by George Waller.

    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.

    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.

    Figures.

    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.
