Football: Shorecrest 49, Seffner Christian 34

ST. PETERSBURG — Quarterback Jamie Quezon and his Shorecrest team waited all season for victory. By passing for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and running for 133 yards and another touchdown, Quezon led the Chargers to one Friday over visiting Seffner Christian.

"This is really big for us," Quezon said. "We've worked hard all season."

The Chargers rushed for 340 yards, led by Quezon, Christian Mandula (84 yards), Garrett Schulte (69) and Alex Drexler (67). Ian Johnston-Schmidt had 117 yards receiving and a TD and kicked all seven PATs.

Quezon scored from 2 yards to give the Chargers a 21-14 lead they never relinquished. He closed the first half with a 55 yard touchdown to Johnston-Schmidt.

"(Johnston-Schmidt) has been my go to guy all season," Quezon said. "My O-line gave me a lot of time so it was easy to find receivers."

In the second half Schulte ran the ball in from 2 yards to put the Chargers up 35-14, but Steven Marsh returned the ensuing kickoff 80 yards for a Crusader score, the first of his two kickoff returns for a touchdown.

"We knew we would get scored on a lot," SCA coach Steve Lewis said. "We made it a point to work on kickoff returns."

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
