Football: Tampa Catholic 37, Mulberry 14

MULBERRY — An early 20-point deficit was more than Mulberry could handle as Tampa Catholic defeated the Panthers 37-14 Friday.

"We can't give up 20 points in the first quarter," Mulberry coach Charlie Warren said. "The guys try to do more than they can do. When they calm down, they start playing better."

The Crusaders scored first on a 1-yard run, but the Panthers fumbled the kick return to give Tampa Catholic the ball back at the Mulberry 15. On the following play, Chivarsky Corbett's 15-yard pass to Joe Ogle converted the turnover to another score.

With only one second remaining in the first half, Mulberry's Leslie Young broke loose for a 15-yard touchdown and conversion run to close out the half 27-8.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  4. Twice the talent: IMG football expands to two teams this fall

    Footballpreps

    BRADENTON — When IMG Academy fielded its first varsity football team in 2013, there were 51 players on the roster. Since then, the roster has nearly tripled. With no junior varsity it was difficult for some to find playing time, and players do not come to IMG to sit the bench.

    The solution? Start another …
