Football: Plant City 33, Wharton 0

PLANT CITY — Plant City looked outstanding in all three phases as the Raiders clobbered visiting Wharton on a misty night.

Plant City quarterback Landon Galloway had a hand in all three offensive touchdowns, running for one (3 yards) and throwing for two (10 and 43 yards). Both TD passes went to Tavares Chase, who hauled in the 43-yarder down the seam with one hand and dragged a defender 5 yards into the end zone.

"Oh man, I just scrambled out and saw he was open and threw it," Galloway said. "I knew he was going to come down with it."

Chase also flashed on defense with two interceptions. Reaquavious Young then intercepted a pass on a tipped ball and returned it 65 yards for the TD.

The Raiders (2-0) also hit two field goals and blocked two field goal tries by the Wildcats (1-1).

Wharton quarterback Chase Litton injured his right wrist when he slipped on the track surrounding the field near the end of the half. Litton left for a play and came back for one more before leaving the game for good.

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    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.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    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

    Bucs

    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?
