Football: Spoto 13, Lennard 3

RIVERVIEW — In a sloppy Friday night meeting, Spoto defeated Lennard 13-3.

With nine total penalties and two lost fumbles combined by both teams in the first quarter, Spoto (3-5, 3-4) found success and hit the scoreboard first in the second quarter behind a 1-yard rushing touchdown by Andrew Henry.

As Spoto took a 7-3 lead into halftime, the score stood the same entering the fourth. Lennard (0-9, 0-7) kept the score close but a late 10-yard touchdown by Henry sealed the deal for the Spartans.

Henry finished with 111 yards on 16 rushes.

"Andrew has really stepped up huge for us this season, he is a main weapon for our team," said Spoto coach Dale Caparaso.

  3. Bucs' O.J. Howard says in NFL, 'it's an SEC game every day'

    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard hasn't played in an NFL game yet, but he already appreciates the grind of an NFL season -- every week can be a loss, perhaps more so than in college football, where Alabama went 12-0 in nonconference, non-bowl games in his three years there.

    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard, shown playing for Alabama in the national championship game in Tampa in January, says every game in the NFL is an SEC game, with no letdowns.
  4. Bucs' Mike Evans wants his 'A' game in 4th NFL season

    Blogs

    Bucs receiver Mike Evans has been in the NFL for three seasons, and in two of them, he's had 12 touchdown catches, setting and then matching his own team record. He made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, but if you ask him to grade those three years, he doesn't see an "A" product just yet.

    Bucs receiver Mike Evans, shown during an OTA workout last month, said he wouldn't give himself an "A" for any of his first three NFL seasons, despite going to the Pro Bowl and twice catching 12 touchdown passes in a season.
