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.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31


    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win


    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State


    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
