Football: Jesuit 49, Steinbrenner 14

LUTZ — This Class 2A district showdown wasn't much of a game. Jesuit had 138 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and Patton Chillura threw for 154 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers also ran back a punt 45 yards for a touchdown.

In the first half Steinbrenner, on its 5-yard line, had a snap go over the head of quarterback Curtis Fitch for a safety. On the ensuing possession, Jesuit drove for a touchdown on a 24-yard run by running back Anthony Harrell. On its next drive Steinbrenner went from bad to worse, allowing another safety.

After another Jesuit scoring drive, Steinbrenner shocked the Tigers with a 99-yard kick return for a touchdown and its first score.

To end the first half, Tigers wide receiver Bryce Walker returned a punt 45 yards for a touchdown.

Chillura threw only one interception and kept his composure throughout. The Tigers defense stayed strong holding, Steinbrenner to 8 yards rushing and 111 passing.

  3. 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.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    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.
