Football: Armwood 80, Strawberry Crest 0

SEFFNER — Armwood has the best defense in the state and maybe the best player in Alvin Bailey. The Hawks did nothing but strengthen that claim Friday night against Strawberry Crest.

In an 80-0 thrashing, Armwood (7-0, 4-0) extended its scoreless quarter streak to 24, and Bailey had two returns for touchdowns and two receiving scores.

"I've had all of the Bailey boys and he is the best," coach Sean Callahan said. "I think he is probably the best football player in the state. He can do everything."

Strawberry Crest was handcuffed by Armwood's swarming defense. The Hawks held Strawberry Crest (0-6, 0-3) to no first downs in the first half and two for the game. Armwood scored on a fumble return by Eric Striker, had a pair of safeties and gang tackled the Chargers all night.

"That's what we try to do on that side of the ball," Callahan said. "We like to get a lot of guys running at the football."

Hawks quarterback Darryl Richardson threw three touchdowns.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
