Osceola 34, Dixie Hollins 28

SEMINOLE — Edwin McKinney made sure his high school career would end in a win, rushing for four touchdowns to lead Osceola.

With the Warriors trailing 21-14 at the start of the fourth quarter, McKinney broke off touchdown runs of 18 and 32 yards on back-to-back possessions. He had scored on rushes of 22 and 64 yards earlier and finished with 231 yards on 25 attempts.

The winless Rebels turned the ball over twice inside their 40-yard line in the fourth, leading to McKinney's final touchdown as well as a 13-yard score on a keeper by quarterback Adam Lewis. Dixie Hollins later cut the deficit to six on a 1-yard touchdown run by Cedric Williams, who carried 21 times for 60 yards and two scores.

The Rebels took over one last time with 24 seconds left but Jace Brown stopped Dixie's Cameron Williams at the Rebels' 42 as time expired.

    PITTSBURGH — The acquisition of slick-fielding shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria said a lot of things, most notably that the Rays are serious about making in-season moves to bolster their chances to make the playoffs, with a reliever, or two, next on the shopping list.
