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.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
