Football: Bishop McLaughlin 60, Cornerstone Charter 6

SHADY HILLS — Bishop McLaughlin entered Friday night's game coming off three straight road wins and looking to make it four in a row at home.

And that's just what the Hurricanes did, beating Cornerstone Charter 60-6.

"I think the kids have finally found their stride. They've played hard every single game," Bishop McLaughlin coach Derrick Alexander said.

The first points of the game came on a 3-yard run from senior receiver Austin Meyers, which was set up nicely by a punt return to the 3.

The Hurricanes defense controlled the first half. Defensive linemen Zac Howley and Zach Lockhart picked up fumbles and took them to the end zone. The defense also forced two safeties and an interception from senior corner Diego Heinzerling, who was in on multiple tackles and also had a forced fumble.

The Hurricanes offense performed as well, with a 58-yard touchdown run from senior Sammy Sullivan and a 22-yard run from quarterback RJ Perciavalle.

Cornerstone Charter was plagued by turnovers and couldn't seem to hold onto the ball. Whether it was bobbled snaps or fumbles, the team had a hard time on offense.

Bishop McLaughlin finished with 250 rushing yards.

  1. Jordan Spieth wins British Open


    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to usher in a new era of golf.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    Lightning Strikes

    WESLEY CHAPEL — As a 17-year-old Triple-A hockey player, MacCallum Brown regularly plays against elite talent. As a Palm Harbor resident, he often has to travel to face that talent.

  4. Rays journal: Rays gamble on Sergio Romo's track record, heart

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for the bullpen.

    Sergio Romo has a 6.12 ERA this season, but his career 0.98 WHIP is best in the majors, and he has held righties to a .189 average.
  5. Rays claim not to be panicking after third straight brutal loss to Rangers

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
