Football: Steinbrenner 28, Strawberry Crest 0

DOVER — Steinbrenner dominated Strawberry Crest on both sides of the ball Friday in a 28-0 rout. The Chargers' offense has yet to find its stride, scoring 12 total points while allowing 145.

On the Warriors' second drive, Kendall Pearcey outran the Chargers (0-3) on a 96-yard race to the end zone. Neither team could do much until the closing minute of the first half when Jake Carroll added yards after the catch for a 45-yard touchdown from Curtis Fitch. The two would connect again later in the game.

Steinbrenner's defense made one critical mistake. On fourth down 10 yards from the goal line, Strawberry Crest tried to force a play that turned into an interception. The pick gave Steinbrenner (2-1) worse field position than an incompletion, leaving the Warriors against their own end zone.

The Chargers' defense held the Warriors to a short punt.

    MINNEAPOLIS — While the Bucs defense struggled to handle multiple starters out with injury, Tampa Bay's offense had no such excuse in struggling to score three points in the first half of a 34-17 loss at the Vikings.
