Football: Fivay 42, Gulf 7

HUDSON — Fivay came out firing in the first half against winless district foe Gulf to prevail 42-7 Friday night.

Gulf's first two possessions resulted in two four and outs, and the Falcons (5-1, 4-0) capitalized both times. Running back Davion Sutton accounted for four of the Falcons' five first-half touchdowns.

Sutton took scores in from 10, 2, 4 and a highlight run of 40 yards, dodging Buccaneers (0-6, 0-3) everywhere with 1:36 left in the half to make the score 35-0.

Fivay quarterback Tyler Degen added a score when he threw a 61-yard pass to Kevin Faulkner down the sideline. Sutton rushed the ball 12 times in the first half for 124 yards.

Fivay's defense shut down the Bucs, allowing only 35 yards of total offense in the half, forcing five punts along the way.

To start the second half, Bryan Poinsette took the kickoff back 94 yards right up the middle, extending the lead to 42. Gulf finally got on the board as the third quarter came to an end when Chris Klyap connected with Brennan Smiley from 36 yards out.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    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.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays scored that many in a single game during their two-plus week numbing stretch of offensive impotency, and in a home game 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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi turned in another short outing Saturday, failing to pitch four innings during the Rays' 7-6 loss.

    Wearing white armbands, umpire Chris Guccione (68), left, Carlos Torres (37)(not wearing armband), center facing, Dana DeMuth (32) center right, and Paul Nauert (39) talk before the start of the game between the Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. The World Umpires Association announced that umpires will be wearing white wristbands during all games to protest escalating verbal attacks on umpires and their strong objection to the Office of the Commissioner?€š€™s response to the attacks.

    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.

    TAMPA — As the Bucs seek their first 10-sack season from a player since Simeon Rice in 2005, who better to help that cause than Rice himself?
