Football: Durant 21, East Bay 14

GIBSONTON — Durant scored two touchdowns in the game's first three minutes, then held off East Bay to win 21-14.

Leading by seven with just under a minute left in the game, Durant (3-2) attempted a field goal from the East Bay 34-yard line. Conner Bass' kick fell way short, and East Bay's Keionne Baines caught it and returned it to the Durant 16-yard line with 37 seconds left.

The Indians (0-4) reached the 7-yard line, but on fourth and 1, quarterback Arthur Jacobs, who had earlier scored on an 8-yard run, lost track of the down and spiked the ball to stop the clock. The Cougars took over with just one second left.

The game began with a 75-yard kickoff return by Durant's Jamell Garrett. After a botched punt by East Bay, Jarmarion Hamilton ran it in from 19 yards.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
