Lakewood 37, Boca Ciega 0

SEMINOLE — Lakewood brought the entire package to Osceola for its game against Boca Ciega and for the first time in six years defeated its crosstown rival in an impressive 37-0 win.

"We wanted to come out here and make a statement," said Lakewood quarterback Jacquez Jenkins, who went 6-for-19 in passing for 161 yards and three touchdowns. "We knew they had a good defense so we worked all week in preparation for it. We were able to take advantage of their man defense both on the run and the pass."

Boca Ciega held Dunedin to 14 points last week but could not do much on either side of the ball as the Spartans outgained the Pirates 387-110.

On the third play of the game, Jenkins hit Bernard Reedy on a go route down the left sideline for an 86-yard score. Then, after holding Boca Ciega to a three and out, Jenkins broke up the middle on a delayed run for a 25-yard score to give the Spartans a 14-0 lead.

On their third possession, Lakewood made the score 21-0 as Jenkins found Victor Perkins in the corner of the end zone.

And Lakewood's defense sacked Boca Ciega quarterback Shaquille Bradford nine times.

"We had a great week of preparation," Lakewood coach Cory Moore said. "We tested well on the mental aspect of the game in preparing for Boca Ciega and we did a good job in executing everything on both sides of the ball."

Reedy, who rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, scored on a 63-yard run in the third quarter to give the Spartans a 34-0 lead.

Boca Ciega's Latavien Washington rushed for 156 yards on 13 carries.

The game was played at Osceola's field because of an infestation of mole crickets at the fields of both competing teams.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.

  4. Bucs journal: Bucs still high on Vikings RB Dalvin Cook


    TAMPA — Coach Dirk Koetter spent a lot of time before this year's draft evaluating RB Dalvin Cook. At one time, the Florida State star and former teammate of QB Jameis Winston was considered the player the Bucs most likely would draft 19th overall.

    Vikings rookie running back Dalvin Cook (33), a standout at Florida State, is third in the league in rushing after two games and fourth in average yards per game.
