Football: Seven Rivers Chr. 66, Hernando Chr. 0

BROOKSVILLE — Hernando Christian Academy was overwhelmed by visiting Seven Rivers Christian in a 66-0 defeat Friday.

Junior Lions defensive back Donald Wainscott created an early bright spot for his team when he intercepted a Josh Downey pass early in the first quarter.

However, Seven Rivers Christian (3-1) quickly retook the momentum when it recovered a Lions fumble near midfield. The Seven Rivers recovery set up a 15-yard score by junior running back Matt Gerhart and gave the Warriors an early 8-0 lead after Seven Rivers tight end Winsor Sineus ran for the two-point conversion.

Wainscott intercepted another Warriors pass in the second quarter, but the Lions (0-3) failed to capitalize on any of their offensive drives thanks to a suffocating Seven Rivers defense and 130 yards of penalties by the Lions — one of those penalties cost Wainscott and receiver Taylor Long a 62-yard touchdown pass.

Lions running back Dakota D'Ambrosio led his team in yards with 24 on 11 carries.

Seven Rivers was led by running back John Iwaniec who collected 109 yards on 12 carries. Iwaniec also ran for two touchdowns and returned an interception 35 yards for a first-quarter touchdown.

Postponed: The Nature Coast at Tavares game did not finish Friday due to inclement weather. It will resume at 7 p.m. Monday. The Sharks were trailing 28-21 when the game was called.

  2. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
