Football: Northeast 14, Anclote 6

ST. PETERSBURG — In a game that was as sloppy as the field and the weather, Northeast outlasted Anclote 14-6 Friday night.

Neither team gained more than 100 yards of total offense as the wet and muddy conditions wreaked havoc.

"We knew the offense was going to be sloppy," Vikings coach Mike Jalazo said. "Our speed was eliminated."

Both teams turned the ball over early. The Vikings muffed a punt while Anclote threw an interception.

Northeast finally found some offense late in the first half, mounting a nine-play, 79-yard drive for the first score. Auggie Sanchez caught a tipped 4-yard pass from Ryan Davis to cap the drive. Demetrious Brooks kicked the extra point to make the score 7-0.

"That drive before halftime was a thing of beauty," Jalazo said.

The Vikings capitalized on a snap over the Anclote punter's head for their next score. On third and goal from the 14, Davis slipped free from the defense and ran the ball in.

Anclote showed signs of life in the fourth quarter when Brevet Killett found Tymere Carter for a 37-yard touchdown to make the score 14-6.

"We put him in to get a spark," Sharks coach Matt Wicks said. "That was his first varsity pass."

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
