Football: Gibbs 48, Dunedin 6

DUNEDIN — Tyron Lansom scored three times and Brevet Killett accounted for three touchdowns — two rushing, one passing — as Gibbs routed Dunedin 48-6 on Friday night.

The Gladiators dominated from start to finish, scoring in the first quarter on a 8-yard touchdown run by Lansom. Killett added a 5-yard touchdown run on the following possession for a 14-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Killett hit Jaquez President with a 12-yard touchdown pass, and Lansom capped Gibbs' big first half with a 3-yard touchdown run for a 28-0 lead.

Lansom led the Gladiators with 89 yards on 14 carries, his third score coming on a 14-yard run in the third quarter to put Gibbs up 42-0.

Killett had a productive game both as a passer and a rusher throwing for 141 yards and rushing for 19 yards and the two scores.

The Gladiators defense held the Falcons to just 115 yards of total offense, 51 of those coming on Dunedin's lone scoring drive. Jordan Williams set up the Falcons with the ball at midfield with his a 30-yard kick return. Tyler Palermiti came in off the bench and gave the Falcons a spark, completing 4 of 6 passes on the drive for 45 yards. Adarius Sims eventually ran in for a 2-yard touchdown.

Gibbs concludes its season next week at Palm Harbor with a chance to finish .500.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.
  3. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
