King 21, Leto 20

TAMPA — Wide receiver Cedric Young credited a 51-yard pass to Quadrea Everett as the defining moment of King's victory.

The only touchdown in the first half was a 3-yard run by Lions quarterback Greg Windham. In the third quarter Leto drove 95 yards, ending on a touchdown pass to Micah Leon. On the next drive, Leto linebacker Jahmeire Caldwell intercepted a pass, setting up a 2-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Deering.

King's Ben Nakamura recovered a fumble on Leto's next drive, setting up a touchdown run by Young. The Lions missed the extra point kick, but a string of Leto penalties gave King the opportunity to try again and Windham ran in a 2-point conversion. In the fourth quarter Leto scored another touchdown, but failed on a 2-point conversion. King quickly rebounded when Nakamura recovered another fumble, leading to the 51-yard touchdown to Everett. Leto got the ball back with 54 seconds remaining but its comeback attempt was thwarted by an interception by Derrick Bass.

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …
