Football: Blake 21, Osceola 14

TAMPA — From the beginning, Friday's game was a nail biter, and Blake (2-4) and Osceola (0-5) sustained that tension until the end.

Osceola scored twice in the first half, including a 46-yard touchdown from Tim Riggs to Jace Browne. Two of Blake's three touchdowns came via the ground game, courtesy of Corey Harris and Desmond Gaines.

But after halftime Blake came out ready to play, holding Osceola scoreless.

On Blake's last drive, Eugene Davenport led an 80-yard scoring drive to break the tie, capped by Desmond Gaines' 8-yard touchdown run.

Blake's Zain Gilmore finished 11-of-13 for 200 yards. He failed to reach the end zone but tried plenty of daring plays to keep the defense on its toes.
