Football: Lennard 35, St. Petersburg Catholic 14

RUSKIN — Lennard extended its record-setting start to 4-0 by winning its Class 2A, District 5 opener, 35-14 over St. Pete Catholic.

"It's taken us four years to build it to this point," Lennard coach George Edington said.

The Longhorns rallied twice and pulled away thanks to Tevin Abbney, who gained 192 yards and scored four times .

"That's what he can do," Edington said of his back, who scored on runs of 7, 7, 4 and 6 yards.

On the third play of the game, the Barons' Ryan Green broke loose for a 79-yard scoring run.

Lennard then marched 70 yards on nine plays, capped by Abbney's first TD.

After Todd Macon's 7-yard run put the Barons back up, Kaylab Phillips had a 14-yard TD run and Fred Porter added the two-point conversion for a 21-14 Lennard lead.

  1. Rays journal: Jake Odorizzi goes on 10-day DL with back strain

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
