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.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
