Football: East Bay 37, Riverview 0

RIVERVIEW — In a battle of winless teams, East Bay shut out Riverview 37-0 on Friday night.

The Indians (1-5) kept to the ground against the Sharks (0-7), rushing for 345 yards and only attempting one pass. The catalyst for the offense was Dante Evans, who rushed for 194 yards on 14 carries with two touchdowns.

Evans scored on a 25-yard run on the opening drive, and East Bay never slowed down from there.

With 50 seconds left in the game, it looked as if Riverview would avoid the shutout when kick returner P.J. Mullings made a couple of defenders miss and found a hole. But East Bay kicker Jacob Martinez made the tackle inside the red zone.

At the end of the game, many East Bay players celebrated by kissing "The Cup," the trophy given to the winner of the rivalry game.

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was the time in late May when Corey Dickerson hit a ball that bounced in front of the plate, swatted it for a double. He hit anything that moved wherever it moved. He was that good.
