Football: Chamberlain 19, Gaither 17

TAMPA — Chamberlain senior Jermaine Gilyard scored on an 8-yard double reverse in the final 1.5 seconds as the Chiefs won 19-17 over Gaither, which had erased a fourth-quarter deficit.

"Last year we would be in that same situation and we wouldn't get it, this year it's different," Gilyard said.

The Chiefs rushed 54 times though star running back Xavier Johnson left in the first half. Juniors Dakari Highsmith (19 carries, 120 yards) and Nick McNeal (15 for 56) stepped in as the Chiefs stayed alive in Class 7A. District 6.

The Chiefs led 13-10 when the Cowboys faced third and 8 from the Chamberlain 8-yard line. A shotgun snap squirted between junior quarterback Alex McGough's legs but he scooped it, scrambled left and hit senior Marcus Brown in the end zone to give the Cowboys a 17-13 lead.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    MADEIRA BEACH — The kids lined up single file, snow cones in hand, a procession of sweaty, excited grade schoolers watching Chasten Whitfield throw a cast net.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
