Football: Northeast 34, Dixie Hollins 15

ST. PETERSBURG — Northeast overcame three early turnovers Friday night and erupted for 27 second-half points en route to a win over Dixie Hollins.

Senior running back Tavares Dunlap fumbled twice in the first half as the Vikings held a slim 9-7 lead at halftime. But he redeemed himself in the fourth quarter, scoring on 36- and 66-yard runs to put the Vikings ahead 27-9. He finished with 113 yards and two touchdowns on 12 rushes, and was one of three Viking running backs to score.

Dixie jumped to a quick 6-0 lead, when Brandon Knapp took the ball 40 yards for a score on the Rebels' first play from scrimmage. But the Rebels didn't muster much else for the next three quarters, gaining just 158 total yards on the night. Quarterback Dana Harrington found Eric Colon in the end zone for a touchdown with 28 seconds left for the Rebels.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.

  5. Bucs journal: Simeon Rice gives master class on sacks to defensive ends


    TAMPA — As the Bucs seek their first 10-sack season from a player since Simeon Rice in 2005, who better to help that cause than Rice himself?
