Football: Wiregrass Ranch 28, River Ridge 7

NEW PORT RICHEY — Wiregrass Ranch put on a clinic both offensively and defensively Friday night, defeating River Ridge 28-6.

Nick Lomba got things started for the Bulls early in the first quarter, running 86 yards untouched into the end zone for a 7-0 lead.

The Bulls didn't let up from there. Running back Antwan Prince added the first of his three touchdowns, rushing from 2 yards out for a 14-0 lead.

Then Prince intercepted a Josh Maisel pass, running it back 84 yards for another Bulls' score. Wiregrass took that comfortable 21-0 lead into halftime.

But the Royal Knights showed life at the start of the second half, scoring on their first possession when Maisel connected with Tyler Allberry from 4 yards out.

But River Ridge (2-6, 1-2) appeared tapped out offensively after that score.

Wiregrass Ranch (5-3, 4-0) ended the game when James Tringali threw an 18-yard touchdown to Prince.

"We just want to finish the district undefeated," Bulls coach Jeremy Shobe said.

The Bulls should have a good chance to do so next week when it travels to winless Hudson.

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
