Football: Blake 7, Dixie Hollins 3

TAMPA — Friday's matchup between Blake and Dixie Hollins was not a time for the offenses to shine, as the Yellow Jackets won 7-3.

The only touchdown of the game came on a Blake (3-4, 2-1) interception after a forced throw deep. Marquise Kelly ran it back 85 yards for the score.

Blake quarterback Eugene Davenport was only 3-for-9 for 22 yards and two interceptions. But he would sneak by defenders and get key first downs to keep drives alive.

Late in the game Dixie Hollins (1-6, 0-3) finally started to move the ball deep into Yellow Jacket territory, but key mistakes backed the Rebels up and they could only muster a field goal.

  2. Want elite college football athletes? Recruit Tampa Bay


    Now that college football watch list season is over (I think), here's one takeaway you probably already knew: Tampa Bay produces a lot of great athletes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Tuesday was a step back in the right direction for the Rays, who halted a season-high five-game losing streak by hanging on — and we mean that pretty much literally — for a 5-4 win over the Orioles.

    Rookie RHP Jake Faria had his lucky rubber duck — OG, the original one he has had since high school — with him, and the Rays had nothing to worry about as he put his rocky Wednesday outing well behind him, working into the eighth while scattering seven hits.
