Freedom 39, Leto 0

TAMPA — Freedom scored more points in the second quarter (18) than visiting Leto gained in offensive yards in the first half Friday.

Leto didn't find success in the second half, either, gaining only three first downs in the game — two of those coming from penalties.

Freedom had two players throw touchdown passes and added three rushing scores from different backs.

Patriots halfback Amonty Delisca threw the first touchdown pass of the game, finding T.J. Mutcherson wide open for a 60-yard score on a second-quarter trick play. Delisca had scored in the first quarter on a 2-yard run. Tyler Guy also had a TD pass in the second quarter.

The Falcons only turned the ball over once and didn't hurt themselves with penalty yardage. But the offense could not execute. Leto's longest offensive play was Terik Greensberry's 8-yard run.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
