Football: Alonso 26, Durant 5

TAMPA — Eddie Castillo and Brandon Holloway combined for four touchdowns as Alonso ran over Durant 26-5 Friday night.

Castillo got the Ravens going with a 44-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Quarterback Brandon Hawkins found Castillo for a 14-yard strike just before halftime.

The Alonso defense put its stamp on the game, forcing Durant into three fumbles on three straight possessions during the third quarter. The Ravens quickly took advantage of the turnovers, converting two of them into touchdowns on long runs by Holloway.

By comparison to other rosters the Ravens are a small squad, carrying only 35 players. But coach Brian Emanuel gushed about his unit after the game.

"Sure we've only got 35 guys, but the players on this team are committed to doing whatever it takes to win," he said. "I'll take my 35 all day, every day.
