Football: Armwood 35, Jefferson 21

SEFFNER — Armwood avoided an upset scare, defeating Jefferson 35-21 Friday night.

The Dragons racked up 213 first-half yards to take a 21-7 lead into halftime. Jefferson quarterback Deiondre Porter threw for two TDs of 29 and 31 yards, respectively.

The second half was all Armwood. Linebacker Antonio McCullough recovered a fumble and scored on a three-yard TD to give the Hawks needed momentum.

The Hawks defense forced a fumble and intercepted Porter twice as the Dragons were held to 74 total yards in the second half.

"This win pulled us together as a team," said Armwood coach Sean Callahan. "We had the chance to show people we could do something special tonight and we did just that in the second half."

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Jerry Kill knew he was headed down a familiar path. Kill, the Rutgers offensive coordinator, acknowledged as much on a lunchtime walk around the Scarlet Knights' football stadium two weeks ago.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon (70) talks with reporters during a press conference before the start of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.
