Indian Rocks Christian 27, Seminole 15

SEMINOLE — Indian Rocks Christian took a big lead and held on through Seminole's 12-point comeback in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Blake Farver and wide receivers Sean Culkin and Tyler Ostheim scored all of IRC's touchdowns. Farver completed 5-of-8 for 173 yards and two touchdowns to Culkin. Ostheim rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns.

The Golden Eagles' ability to convert on fourth down was crucial. On fourth and 5, Farver completed passes of 28 and 35 yards to Culkin. Ostheim then scored on a 5-yard rush to the end the half.

"Tyler is an athlete. He is very tough to cover," Farver said. "Working with him and Sean (Culkin) is a blessing."

Seminole missed several scoring opportunities because of fumbles, which often gave IRC good field position. The Warhawks dominated the fourth quarter. Quarterback Trevor Sands completed a 51-yard score to Teddy Willis and ran for a 20-yard touchdown.

Farver credited the offensive line. "I've never had this much protection in my life," he said. "They really put their hearts out tonight."

  4. Rays morning after: How exactly did they let that game slip away


    Rays manager Kevin Cash assumed Thursday's game was over when Gary Sanchez rolled a ground ball toward the shortstop spot with the tying run on third and two outs in the ninth. So did closer Alex Colome. As well as second baseman Tim Beckham.

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.
