Football: St. Petersburg Catholic 42, Calvary Christian 35

ST. PETERSBURG — Elevisi Halapio stole the show for St. Petersburg Catholic on Friday night as his team outlasted Calvary Christian in a wild 42-35 shootout.

The defensive lineman caught a kickoff at his own 25, took off up the sideline and into the end zone for a 75-yard return that tied the score at 35 in the third quarter. He also recorded 3 ½ sacks.

Freshman Tony Jones, who ran for 123 yards, plunged into the end zone for his third touchdown to put SPC up 42-35. With 2:26 to play, Calvary quarterback Allen Barnes led his team 64 yards downfield. Barnes tried to go around the right side of the line before dropping the ball into the end zone where SPC's Chris White recovered the fumble. Allen and Derek Barnes each had 113 and 116 yards, respectively.

    Now that college football watch list season is over (I think), here's one takeaway you probably already knew: Tampa Bay produces a lot of great athletes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Tuesday was a step back in the right direction for the Rays, who halted a season-high five-game losing streak by hanging on — and we mean that pretty much literally — for a 5-4 win over the Orioles.
