Football: Boca Ciega 32, Osceola 6

SEMINOLE — Boca Ciega's defense came up big in a 32-6 district win over Osceola on Thursday.

Quarterback Bobby Runcie engineered a 10-play, 64-yard drive on the Pirates' opening possession, capped by a 1-yard touchdown run by Antoine Benjamin.

Courtney Burge, who had two interceptions, helped the Warriors (1-4, 0-2) get on the board with his first pick in the second quarter. It resulted in a 17-yard run by Josh Townsend that evened the score at 6.

In the third, Denzal Dillard scored on a 23-yard run and Benjamin added another touchdown on an interception return to put the game out of reach.

Boca Ciega freshman Derrick Cook came in during the fourth quarter and led the Pirates (2-3, 1-1) to a score. He went 5-for-5 for 83 yards with one touchdown.

"I was very proud of the way the defense played throughout the game and we should have shut them out," Pirates coach Antez Brinson said.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
