Football: Wiregrass Ranch 15, Ridgewood 0

WESLEY CHAPEL — Wet weather played havoc Friday night in Wesley Chapel. With completion percentages low, Wiregrass Ranch and Ridgewood mainly dueled it out on the ground in a hard-fought 15-0 Bulls victory.

Wiregrass Ranch (2-2) senior quarterback James Tringali completed 9 of 23 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Antwan Prince and Donovan Blackman caught 2- and 18-yard touchdowns. The point after attempt on the first touchdown was wide and the pass failed on the two-point conversion attempt later.

Rudy Walker was the Bulls' main rushing threat, running for 63 yards on 10 carries. The Bulls fumbled twice, losing one.

The Ridgewood (0-4) offense was at a standstill for most of the game thanks to the Bulls' defense. Held to 91 yards, the Rams picked up only four first downs. Cameron Rodriguez, who completed his only pass out of the nine total passing attempts for the Rams, rushed 25 times for 46 yards. The first pass attempt by Ralphy Dawkins did not come until the Rams' 13th play.

Ridgewood fumbled four times, but recovered each time.

The Rams' longest gain of the game came on a fake punt, when they picked up 38 yards to convert a first down.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — Lightning captain Steven Stamkos was curious how he would feel — and perform — in Friday's exhibition against Nashville, his first game since mid-November knee surgery.

  3. Rays journal: Rays tie franchise home run record

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — A major flaw in the Rays offense this season — and thus a major reason for their inconsistent play and losing record — has been too much reliance on the home run.

    ST. PETERSBURG — When Hurricane Irma blew through Florida earlier this month, Ww's Odessabeach remained in her comfort zone.

  5. Steven Souza Jr. vindicating big trade for Rays

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — There was a time when the three-team, 11-player transaction the Rays orchestrated to get Steven Souza Jr. from the Nationals looked liked a bad deal.

    The Rays’ Steven Souza Jr. has 30 home runs this season while improving his defense and baserunning but wants to improve on his .236 batting average.
