Football: Palm Harbor University 28, North Port 13

PALM HARBOR — Jonah Fiskaa's 17-yard third-quarter touchdown run off a muffed punt was the difference Friday as Palm Harbor University beat North Port 28-13 in a Class 8A, District 7 matchup.

Fiskaa, quarterback Tyler Kaminski and receiver Shane Dixon provided all of the Hurricanes' points. Fiskaa carried 21 times for 174 of the teams 277 rushing yards. Kaminski was 7-of-16 for 72 yards and a touchdown. Dixon chipped in three receptions for 45 yards, the biggest a 31-yard catch and run on fourth and 10 that gave the Hurricanes a one-point lead.

Defense kept the Hurricanes (6-2, 2-0) in the game.

"We didn't play completely up to our potential," PHU coach Matt LePain said. "The defense did well though, holding them (North Port) to no points off three first-half turnovers."

    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?
