Football: Blake 20, Gibbs 13

ST. PETERSBURG — Blake's defense provided a slight edge as the Yellow Jackets defeated Gibbs 20-13 Friday night.

Blake's defensive standouts included defensive back Javon Kitchen, who finished with an interception and a blocked punt deep in Gibbs territory, and defensive tackle Kentae McAllister. He contributed one sack and a blocked extra-point attempt.

McAllister led a pass rush that seemed to disrupt the backfield nearly every play. Gibbs quarterback Patrick Jones was victimized by the constant pressure, finishing 5-for-14 for 77 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Blake's Zain Gilmore was 10-of-18 passing for 140 yards with one touchdown while rushing for 34 yards and another score.

Gibbs offensive standout Gary Simon totaled 94 all-purpose yards, including a 17-yard touchdown reception. Gibbs receiver Devontay Williams had four catches for 28 yards and a score.

"We tell our guys to just use their heads," Blake coach Harry Hubbard said. "We told them, 'this is the season right here.' "

Blake improves to 4-6, 3-5 while Gibbs falls to 2-6, 2-5.

    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.
