Northside Christian 56, Calvary Christian 6

ST. PETERSBURG — Some daring play-calling and a stout running attack helped Northside Christian cruise past Calvary Christian.

The Mustangs opened the game with an onside kick, then on the first play from scrimmage running back Chris Culbreth, who finished with 197 yards, bolted 49 yards around right end for a touchdown.

After Jimmy VanDeilen's 1-yard run put Northside up 14-0, the Mustangs recovered another onside kick. Eight plays later, VanDeilen found Andrew Speake in the end zone for a 16-yard score.

The Warriors closed to 21-6 when receiver Zach Hubbard recovered a fumble in the end zone by a Northside defender who had just made an interception.

But a 65-yard pass play from Kyle Craichy to Jimmy Smith and another Culbreth run put the Mustangs up 35-6 at halftime.

    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.
