Football: Countryside 44, Clearwater 7

CLEARWATER — Robby Hicks looks like he has been the starting quarterback all season, completing 12 of 23 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown as Countryside stopped Clearwater 44-7 Friday.

Hicks ran a balanced offense, totaling 222 yards.

The Tornadoes (2-5, 1-2) came to play, however. Jordan Leston was 10-of-32 for 101 yards and added 46 yards on the ground, including Clearwater's lone touchdown. That came on an 11-play, 80-yard drive late in the second quarter.

Countryside (7-1, 3-0) scored six touchdowns and added a 47-yard field goal from Ryan Pandy in the second. Senior Mike Flory scored twice and Marrieo Taylor had a 69-yard punt return in the third quarter that put Countryside up 38-7.

    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Jerry Kill knew he was headed down a familiar path. Kill, the Rutgers offensive coordinator, acknowledged as much on a lunchtime walk around the Scarlet Knights' football stadium two weeks ago.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon (70) talks with reporters during a press conference before the start of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.
