Football: Osceola 15, Seminole 6

SEMINOLE — Ryan Allan scored two touchdowns and Wilan Harvey provided a bruising presence in Osceola's ground game in a 15-6 victory over county rival Seminole at Osceola High School on Friday.

The game featured a 50-minute delay for lightning and a scoreless first half before the Warriors (1-0) got their ground attack going.

Harvey had 143 yards on 30 carries and kept nearly everything in between the tackles and in the middle of the field as the Warriors wore down Seminole in the second half.

On its first possession of the second half the Warriors withstood a 15-yard penalty and drove 66 yards on 14 plays with Allan scoring on an 8-yard option keeper and Harvey providing the two-point conversion to take an 8-0 lead.

The Warhawks (0-1) battled back on the next drive and found success in the passing game. Quarterback Aaron Dever hit Lakendrick Staley for a 30-yard gain for a first down at midfield. A 14-yard run by Staley put the Warhawks at the Osceola 29 and Dever connected with Deontavius Gary for a 29-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion was broken up and Osecola led 8-6 going into the fourth quarter.

Seminole had several opportunities to stop Osceola in the fourth but committed crucial penalties to keep its defense on the field. With Osceola facing third and 6 at its 40, the Warhawks jumped offsides and Harvey easily converted on third and 1. A second penalty, a personal foul, gave Osceola a first down at the 6 and Allan scored his second touchdown one play later with a QB sneak from the 1.

  1. Rays try to maintain calm in face of slump

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings. That he left with the Rays trailing 1-0 in a game that was not complete at press time continued what to that point had been a rough stretch for the Rays.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — with a season-high seven-plus innings. It wasn't only that he got deep into the game but how, using his high-octane fastball to pound the strike zone.
