Football: Armwood 49, Alonso 7

TAMPA — Junior running back Matt Jones surpassed 1,000 yards and teamed with quarterback Josh Grady for six touchdowns as Armwood capped a perfect regular season with a 49-7 victory against Alonso on Friday night.

Jones rushed for 126 yards on 21 carries and scored three times, raising his season totals to 1,023 yards and 22 touchdowns, 20 on the ground. Grady (7-of-12, 132 yards) threw a 69-yard scoring pass to Javonte Sneed and ran for two TDs. Armwood (10-0) allowed only 156 yards, 99 on a touchdown run by Brandon Holloway.

Alonso (4-6) rotated sophomores Brandon Hawkins and Nate Mills at quarterback in the absence of senior Dylan Fisher, one of three Raven seniors suspended for one game after altercations last week at Gaither. Cody Pascua and Carl Paul also were suspended.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
