Football: Chamberlain 13, Wharton 10

TAMPA — The Chamberlain passing combination of Thaddeus Baxley and William Whiteside clicked and the defense did just enough as the Chiefs (1-1) held on to top Wharton (0-2).

Behind a solid running attack and the timely passing combo of Baxley and Whiteside, the Chiefs moved the ball 90 yards over nine minutes in the first half. Chamberlain capped the drive with a 2-yard run by Baxley.

In the second half, after getting on the board with a field goal, wideout Marvin Murray took a reverse to the right, fumbled, scooped it up and outraced the Chamberlain defense down the right sideline for a 10-yard touchdown. But Baxley and Whiteside hooked up for a 26-yard TD to put the Chiefs ahead 13-10 in the fourth.

Neil MacInnes' 33-yard field goal attempt was no good with one minute left for Wharton.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie INF Daniel Robertson has earned raves for his defensive play at both second base and shortstop, making a highlight play almost every game he starts, including one in the fifth inning Friday.

    The Heater

    DH/LF Corey Dickerson has gotten more attention, but 1B Logan Morrison has had a tremendous first two months. His fourth-inning homer Friday was his team-leading 13th, one shy of his total for 107 games last season, and gave him 34 RBIs.

  5. Rowdies anxious to get back on track


    ST. PETERSBURG — Having already played four matches in less than two weeks' time, the Rowdies have to turn around again on short rest to host Saint Louis FC today.
