Shorecrest 14, Keswick Christian 12

ST. PETERSBURG — Trailing Shorecrest by two with less than a minute to go Friday, the only thing Keswick Christian couldn't afford was a turnover. Next thing the Crusaders knew, the ball was on the ground and covered by the Chargers. The Crusaders' bid for a second win this season fell 26 yards short.

After touchdown runs by Hunter Tremaine and Austin Settle gave Shorecrest a 14-0 lead, DeJuan Wright returned a kickoff 83 yards for Keswick with about 8 minutes left. After a failed two-point conversion attempt, Shorecrest regained possession only to turn the ball back over on downs.

Wright then went 44 yards down the right sideline for his second score. Wright's run on the two-point try was stopped short.

But Max Gisbert recovered an onside kick to give Keswick one last shot. However, Shorecrest fell on a fumbled handoff.

  2. Want elite college football athletes? Recruit Tampa Bay


    Now that college football watch list season is over (I think), here's one takeaway you probably already knew: Tampa Bay produces a lot of great athletes.

    Robinson High produuct Byron Pringle has gone from this performance in a high school all-star game to all-Big 12 at Kansas State.
  3. ESPN's Dick Vitale, shown at One Buc Place last year when he announced a Bucs draft pick, has high hopes for Tampa Bay this fall, predicting a 10-6 record for the Bucs.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Tuesday was a step back in the right direction for the Rays, who halted a season-high five-game losing streak by hanging on — and we mean that pretty much literally — for a 5-4 win over the Orioles.

    The Rays’ Tim Beckham celebrates with Mallex Smith after hitting a three-run homer in the second inning for a 5-0 lead.

    Rookie RHP Jake Faria had his lucky rubber duck — OG, the original one he has had since high school — with him, and the Rays had nothing to worry about as he put his rocky Wednesday outing well behind him, working into the eighth while scattering seven hits.
