Football: Blake 32, Lennard 7

TAMPA — For Blake, Thursday night marked its last home game of the season. And the Yellow Jackets didn't disappoint their fans, defeating Lennard (1-7, 1-5) 32-7.

Blake did the majority of its damage in the first half. In the first quarter, junior quarterback Zain Gilmore connected with DeAndre James and Darreon Telfair for two touchdowns. Running back Gregory Peterson added a 3-yard touchdown run and Blake (3-5, 2-5) led 25-0 at halftime.

Not to be outdone by its offense, the Blake defense also played a major role, accounting for two touchdowns.

Toward the end of the game, a few of the Blake players sneaked behind coach Harry Hubbard and gave him a Gatorade bath in celebration.

"It always feels good to get a win," Hubbard said. "But I'm especially happy for our seniors. This is the last time that they will play for Blake High School at home. So I'm happy for them."

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
