Football: Mitchell 36, Anclote 7

TRINITY — In between the penalties, and there wasn't much time between penalties, Mitchell running back Ryan Marsh put on a show Friday. Marsh ran for 252 yards on just 11 carries, scoring three times in the Mustangs' 36-7 defeat of visiting Anclote.

All of Marsh's touchdowns were long distance, including an impressive burst of speed for an 89-yarder on the first play of the second half to give Mitchell a 22-0 lead. It brought life back to a large home crowd that suffered through a 26-penalty, 85-minute first half. The final penalty count was 36: Anclote 19 for 146 yards, Mitchell 17 for 166 including four personal fouls in the second half.

Mitchell added a pair of throwing scores in the latter stages, with Alec Lambert hitting Matthew Blackburn from 21 yards and backup Lawrence Dellabatta finding Dominic Fiumara on a 41 yarder.

Marsh scored twice within in the opening six minutes. His first carry was a simple run off right tackle where Marsh got to the sideline for a 48-yard score. His 49-yard score up the middle was created by a crushing block from left guard Devontay Taylor.

The penalty fest ensued, with Anclote getting flagged 15 times for 116 yards in the first half. The Sharks once dug themselves a third-and-32 hole, though actually got out of it with a 29-yard pass from Brandon Vinkler to Jonte Scott, who then caught a fourth-down conversion.

Scott would supply Anclote's only score with a late 89-yard punt return. He also had three catches for 43 yards.

Levi Oliveto had four sacks, three in the first half including a near safety, for the Mustangs. Standout middle linebacker Larry Couch and a tackle for a 14-yard loss as Anclote could not establish a rushing attack. The Sharks finished with minus-13 yards rushing, its longest gain coming on a fake punt.

Mitchell's J.J. Lewis had the catch of the night, a one-handed snag that he turned into a 46-yard score — but it was pulled back for holding.

Dakota Kerns had a sack and several more tackles for loss on the Anclote side, and Demetrius Barry was strong in the Sharks' secondary while adding three receptions on offense.

Vinkler finished 10-of-20 for 113 yards.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
