Lakewood 45, Northeast 7

ST. PETERSBURG — Senior Jermiel Douse ran for two first-half touchdowns as Lakewood improved to 8-2 with a victory over Northeast (3-7) on senior night.

The Spartans outgained Northeast 312-70 and had 14 first downs to the Vikings' two. Lakewood also recovered two fumbles.

Northeast recovered a fumble at the Spartans' 21-yard line early in the third quarter to set up a 10-yard TD run by Jovonte Brinson. That cut Lakewood's lead to 17-7, but the Spartans responded with a 37-yard TD pass from Alphonso Evans to Andre Taylor that started a string of 28 unanswered points.

Lakewood's Byronton Jackson had 118 rushing yards on 18 carries.

"It was a good game for us, we wanted to have momentum heading into the playoffs" said coach Cory Moore, whose Lakewood squad will visit Pasco in the opening round of the playoffs.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
