Football: Carrollwood Day 47, Shorecrest 10

TAMPA — Carrollwood Day stumbled out of the gate Friday. Senior quarterback Deuce Gruden threw a pick on his first pass. He and junior tailback Robert Davis looked tired and banged up as did the rest of the team. Shorecrest committed to running the ball, gaining 170 yards while attempting just 10 passes.

But two late first-half scores by junior Dominiq Sicardo and a fumble return for touchdown by Davis set the tone for the second half, with CDS prevailing 47-10.

"I told them at halftime, they don't wanna show up to practice on Monday if they don't score 30 points in the second half," CDS coach Lane McLaughlin said.

On the Patriots' first drive of the third quarter, senior Dillon Floyd caught a 46-yard TD from Gruden. Shorecrest (1-3) then fumbled and junior Andy Embody scooped it up and took it to the house. In a blink, the 12-3 halftime score turned into a 26-3 blowout.

The Patriots (3-1) forced four turnovers in the second half, one on downs. Davis finished with 97 yards rushing while Gruden went 10-of-19 passing for 165 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Shorecrest senior running back Alex Drexler gained 100 yards on nine carries.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
