Football: Northeast 33, Boca Ciega 26

ST. PETERSBURG — Dominique Ellis' 2-yard touchdown run with 13 seconds left lifted the Vikings past the Pirates and into the playoffs (with help from Gibbs beating Seminole).

Down 20-7, Boca Ciega scored three quick touchdowns to take the lead. Shaquille Bradford hit Phadrae White for an 85-yard score. On Northeast's following possession, Caleb McCullough returned an interception 60 yards to tie it. After recovering an onside kick, Bradford threw a 45-yard touchdown to Kendryk Boyd to give the Pirates a 26-20 lead.

Northeast tied the score in the middle of the fourth quarter on an 8-yard run by Ellis.

"We put our defense in bad spots with turnovers," Northeast coach Jay Austin said. "However, we came from behind in the fourth quarter. Our kids never gave up."

    PITTSBURGH — RHP Alex Cobb couldn't have been much better for the Rays on Tuesday, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning while working eight solid. And Alex Colome couldn't have been much worse, blowing a two-run ninth-inning lead.
