Football: Sunlake 43, Wiregrass Ranch 6

WESLEY CHAPEL — Friday was the beginning of the high school football season, and nobody seemed more prepared than Sunlake.

The Seahawks visited Wiregrass Ranch and walked out with a 43-6 win. Rashaud Daniels got things started for Sunlake scoring from 1 yard out. The Seahawks converted on a two-point conversion to take an 8-0 lead and never looked back.

Daniels led the team in rushing, with 91 yards on 12 carries and had more touchdowns (three) than the entire Wiregrass. Quarterback Jacob Jackson also chipped with 75 rushing yards.

Wiregrass was unable to stop the Seahawks' rushing attack, which totaled 271 yards.

Early on Wiregrass looked like it might make a game of it, also scoring on its first drive. Wiregrass quarterback James Tringali completed six of his first seven passes for 50 yards, which included a 5-yard touchdown pass to Nick Lomba. But Tringali but ended up going 3-for-12 the rest of the game.

Sunlake's defense also stepped up, forcing four Bulls turnovers, two fumbles and two interceptions.

Wiregrass coach Jeremy Shobe said his team needed to play better fundamentally, including protecting the football.

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.

    TAMPA — If you want to see a team give the Heisman Trophy stiff-arm to expectations, check out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Tight end O.J. Howard, left, the Bucs’ first-round draft pick this year, was brought in to give QB Jameis Winston another big-play option.
