Football: Keswick Christian 35, Northside Christian 28

ST. PETERSBURG — With senior Adam Foster leading the way, Keswick Christian constructed a winning drive late in the fourth quarter to knock off Northside Christian 35-28 and earn its first win of the season Friday night.

Foster made his mark on both sides of the ball for the Crusaders (1-4, 1-3), finishing with 28 carries, 209 yards and three touchdowns, along with a sack and two tackles for loss.

"Last year he was our best lineman," KCS coach Rick Sanson said. "He played fullback, but we called him a lineman on offense because he blocked so well. This year, he gets to be the feature back, and he's been the heart of this team for two years."

The Mustangs (0-6, 0-5) took control of the first half, forcing three turnovers and scoring 21 points. Two of those turnovers were interceptions by Seki Singletary, who returned one of them for a 40-yard touchdown. In his first game back from suspension, he was also NCS's leading contributor on offense, finishing 5-of-16 passing with 103 yards and one touchdown.

Down 21-7 to start the third quarter, Keswick answered with 14 consecutive points and two rushing touchdowns from Foster to tie. The Mustangs were not fazed, however, as Singletary answered with a 60-yard rush down the left sideline, leading to a punch in from running back Jhon Williams, who finished with 41 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries.

After a shaky first half with three interceptions, Crusaders quarterback Taylor Angell came through when needed, throwing an 18-yard touchdown pass to receiver TJ Muscarella to tie the score for the final time. He completed all three passes he attempted in the second half, totaling 69 yards.

Keswick's next drive was the winner with just over a minute to go in the fourth quarter.

  4. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer


    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
