Football: Cambridge 36, Northside Christian 7

TAMPA — Friday's Class 2A, District 5 matchup between Cambridge and Northside Christian was essentially a no-frills, consistent offensive attack by the Lancers (3-1, 2-1), who prevailed 36-7.

Cambridge tallied 239 yards and two touchdowns via the ground, with Lancers quarterback Phillip Johnson adding 136 yards and two touchdowns on 6-of-20 passing. Northside Christian's lone touchdown came in the game's waning moments when the Lancers' starters were out.

Mustangs quarterback Max Massengill completed just 1-of-7 for 57 yards and an interception. On its final two drives, Northside (0-4, 0-3) did move the ball well, but any ground gained was usually negated by penalties. Massengill did most of the heavy lifting late, rushing for 45 yards on those last drives.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

  2. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
