Northeast 35, Osceola 28

ST. PETERSBURG — One is steady. The other is flashy.

Senior running back Daryl Copeland (113 yards, three touchdowns) and senior receiver Hank White (75-yard punt return) led host Northeast past Osceola.

"They play hard, and they play like they never know what the score is," Northeast coach Jay Austin said. "Hank's been playing varsity since the ninth grade, and he continually makes circus catches and big plays. Daryl just takes the ball and pounds it the entire game."

After Osceola's Edwin McKinney (139 yards) gave the Warriors a surprising 14-0 lead with TD runs of 41 yards and 55 yards, Copeland answered with a 45-yarder.

Later, the Vikings blocked a punt, and Copeland scored three plays later as Northeast was on its way to scoring 28 straight points.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.
