Preseason football: Pinellas County roundup

Lennard 57, St. Pete Catholic 0: Freshman Devin Black threw for four touchdowns, Diontae Johnson scored four including two on punt returns, and host Lennard put on quite a display. "I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. We're going to be pretty good," said Longhorns coach Keith Chattin, whose teams have gone 1-19 over his first two seasons. Running backs Josh Shelman and Jarren Bailey had two touchdowns each, and the defense was a force as well.

Calvary Christian 27, Bishop McLaughlin 7: The Warriors started strong, scoring on their first four possessions to build a 27-0 halftime lead. Conor Regan took the opening kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown. Stephon Williams, a transfer from St. Petersburg Catholic, also scored on a 16-yard run. In the second half, the Warriors played most of their backups.

Rained out: Boca Ciega at North Fort Myers and Canterbury at Fort Myers Canterbury were both canceled due to inclement weather.

Southwest Florida Christian 38, Keswick Christian 26: The Crusaders went down 14-0 early before finding its rhythm. Keswick outscored Southwest Florida Christian 21-12 in the second half but still came up short. Quarterback Parker Holland was 13-for-19 for 289 yards and three touchdowns. Receiver T.J. Muscarella caught six passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Receiver Asher Thompson caught four passes for 100 yards, including a 76 yard touchdown.

"We just have to work on starting faster," Keswick coach Blake Englehart said. "We've got some good things happening but we just started too slowly."

Admiral Farragut 35, Moore Haven 7: The Blue Jackets took a 28-0 lead in the first half and pulled most of their starters. Quarterback Dalton Collins threw for nearly 200 yards. Jestin Greene scored a touchdown and also had an interception. Admiral Farragut had five interceptions in the game. Donnie Crum added a rushing touchdown, and Alex Gray had a 95-yard kickoff return and a rushing touchdown,

"We were able to get our starters some work in the first half and then we played a bunch of young guys in the second half," AFA coach Ryan Hearn said. "I'm a perfectionist so I always find stuff to correct, but we played pretty well."

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    MADEIRA BEACH — The kids lined up single file, snow cones in hand, a procession of sweaty, excited grade schoolers watching Chasten Whitfield throw a cast net.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
